he shows himself
in half-statements
metaphors to distract
his intent as he
skims the periphery
like a cat curled
on the couch
he silently watches
her as she moves
through the room
conversations end
or begin in middles
non-sequiturs bend
a mobius space
as he speaks with her
when she questions
he hides
his heart
in obfuscation
and whispers
oh Alice
what do you think
you see
when you
talk to me
(November 2011)
