Auntie Raconteur

I need to spend to more time with things,
She interrupted another
One of her shaggy-dog stories

About people annoying her
To observe. Someone observed back,
But you need people to listen

To funny stories about them.
There’s no entertaining mere things.
Exactly! She replied. I know

My stories aren’t entertaining,
But when you’re alone you don’t need
To be entertaining do you?

You can talk to things about things
That would never fit in stories.
But Auntie, you tell them so well!

Nonsense! She laughed and drove away
While we exchanged knowing glances,
As pines and oaks murmured and swayed.
