Authenticity of love might go missing
when gossip, or doubt , tilt jagged talk
which neighbors listen to while breakfasting
on left over cheese and chocolate.
Might be hushed by pain and soft crying
when only bits of truth meet wild imagination,
only interested in rubbing wealth of maybes,
over an ending of satisfying titillation .
Genuine caring becomes lean, perhaps
even lost, in this far from proper alphabet
soup of negative speculation. Nothing
good comes of this overheard sharing.

Notes: This wasn’t exactly where I was heading when I started, but the words were adamant about where they wanted to go. Interesting to note, when I went looking on the web for images of ‘gossip’, the first set of images (over 20 stacked like the one above), had only two male participants. I preferred Rockwell’s truer perspective. I did use all of the words.
