she is in the same room

she is in the same room drawing
to herself your tapped and untapped
store of

she is taking in attention
you are at attention
once you were replete with it

she is talking to herself not you
she is performing what she does
she is in difficulty

she wants you to help her
she wants you not to help her
she is doing what she does is talking to herself

she is extracting your attention
from the job that you were doing
she says never mind

only you mind
you try (not) to listen
you always mind her

"mind your head" is said in England
"watch out" in America
something this vague might (not) matter

sometimes we do and sometimes
you look at her as if to say or not say
what is left of me
