The Other Side of the Wall

The men in their own cabin,
The other side of the wall,
Conversed in booming voices

With occasional laughter,
Maybe a touch too hearty,
About their day on the trail.

We are healthy, their voices
Seemed to reassure themselves,
We’ve been doing sturdy things.

We’ve had an interesting day
Hiking with other people.
We’ve come back with anecdotes,

We are anecdote hunters,
And we have had some success,
Which we will share by talking

Humorously, in stories
We work on as we tell them,
Proving our lives have been lived.
