Conversation w/ a Stranger
*I'm a poet.* Un-confident. More of a question really.
*Are you?* Nonchalant. All knowing.
*Do you doubt me?* Even I doubt me.
*I'll write for you.* A challenge. A motive. A meaning.
*You always have.* Unbroken composure.
*I don't understand.* A thousand questions burning me outside in.
*Don't you?* Fixed. Constant.
*Perhaps...* Wheels are turning, fires burning.
*Perhaps what?* His eyes on mine.
*I am an old soul.* Understanding.
*So you do understand.* A star falls.
*Goodbye, then, old friend.* Sometimes there are more than two halves.
*We'll meet soon.* When the planets align for us.
*I know.* I know. Finally, I know.
