Within the moments
during an interaction between people,
there are unseen
interlaced moments
that lie just below the surface.
Another drama is being
played out. A drama
without pretence where the actors
know each others thoughts
where no one grows old
or has regrets.
It’s a place where we are in on the joke
where we wait for a moment
off stage
and go over our lines.

Guarded Moments


I was scanning my brain
the other day,
searching for toeholds
in appropriate convolutions
and inside one crevice
a playback loop of sorts
was going on and on
just below the surface.
it said “with all your armour
and your elaborate filters
you cannot feel the pulsing,
undulating moments
that swim around
and through you.”
It was the call to action
that brought me to this point.
Since it continues to repeat
it propels me still.
