“What are you thinking about?” – Makati,c. May 2015

the quiet
pensiveness
i remember;
those startled
and startling
silences
when your
mind
would go
into overdrive
and one
could all
but hear
the cogs
the gears
in your
head
coming alive
cogitating
your next
move.

and i,
awed,
would hold
my tongue
my breath
and await
what gems
of music
of magic
would appear
next.
