Door Bell Chimes

By how far in you are allowed
upon meeting determines
exactly where you may stand
when words confuse simple situations
your presence remains unplanned
after a row and no storm out
suggests that you are willing to stay
through the boring and the shallow
the crises and mundane
just a hand on a hip
without a pull away
may simply mean
if you take your time more than you touch
can eventually be seen
But if the door slams in your face
and words are considered law
and after a tiff the drawers are empty
and the pictures have come off the wall
when a glance and touch cause shivers
down a irritated spine
see the signs for an early exit
and if you’re brave you know, its time.
