There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them. -Sylvia Plath

She tries.

She cracks the right jokes
She pours him his favorite wine
She hangs onto every word
But, all she receives are
His casual replies, eyes at the watch
Back up to his study, safe.

She cries.
