Permissions

Permissions

In the museum where I volunteer

Almost every week,

I am in a reception area

For the museum

And the gift shop

And when one of us

Leaves that area,

We say, “I’m going to

(wherever we’re going)”

And invariably the person

Remaining behind says,

“All right”

As if they needed to give

Permission,

(Which they don’t)

But they do it anyhow.

I’ve noticed this

With other people

And think it polite

And useful

Depending.

And that way we always know

Where we

Are.
