To Pop or Not to Pop

She entered here and stated as she sat,
“You need to add some color to your bed.
This area is fine, but look at that –
all wood and white – it wants a pop instead
(or in addition) – that’s my point of view.”
“I disagree,” I said. “I like the look.
I want no bed attention that’s undue.
That spot’s my private sleep-and-reading nook.”

I meant no argument – how could there be
a right or wrong for how my bed is dressed?
But she shut down. She didn’t disagree
but wouldn’t talk, as if she were distressed.
I thought we were describing different taste,
but I got read “aggressive.”
For my haste?
