In response to Fandango’s One word Challenge – Patronize

A pat on the head
an absent smile
A distracted nod
mile after mile

A grunt for an answer
a question left hanging
Wait by the phone
emotional head banging

A glance of acknowledgment
over before it’s begun
Attention is waning
wonder if it’s all done

A miscommunication
or lack there of
Leaves a lonely heart aching
patronized with crumbs
