In friends I like a cheerful nature
And honesty enriches the deal.
I’d sooner sit with realness
Than suffer the pretentious.
Wanda, with her southern accent and fake genteel manner,
Asks “Why is it you don’t like me?”
Gently I caress her hand.
It’s not her nature to understand.

What an interesting take on forgiveness . . . forgiving people for not having capacities you want them to have. Maybe, just maybe, that frees us to see the capacities they do have.
Maybe! Dina always has an interesting slant on things.
