PAD 18

The Mortgage Broker

Keep it at arm's length

was a spoken rule.
They laid their dreams,
their sweat, their toil
their failures, their foibles,
brutally documented,
on the table.
I handed them a blue pen
and said sign here.

I love this insight into a broker at work, recognizing but not acknowledging the layers of meaning behind the numbers on the page.

You asked about your poetry. You give life to words, emotions to sentient letters. There is more here than you know dear friend. (Hugs)Indigo

Unfortunately for the economy, their dreams were often taken into more account than their foibles... :/
