Talking, taIking ideas,

disagreeing, agreeing,

bouncing around with words,

being together in thought,

feeling another being think,

excitement, emotion arranged

with imaginings, explaining,

questioning, and agreeing that

differences are great.


Strung out in shaping faces,

and gestures that craft

meaning with words.


Voices calm and then intense,

thrown across to vacant spaces,

and then the response.


This is the way I want to

be with all of you.


This is what must not be lost.
