Poem 23: Words

Old Joe knows
what was said
but he’s a guy who tends
 to interpret social interactions.
He wonders
if what is said
is what is meant.
Does the mouth say one thing
but the body another?
Is it a matter of sincerity
or of politeness, or even manipulation?
He can’t take things
at face value.
It’s a blessing
and a curse.
