    i think this is not...poetry, yet, i submit...
    ---------

    he offered
    polite conversation
    i didn't ask for anything
    not even interruption
    from him

    "do you need help?"
    i smiled halfly...
    saying nothing
    looking past his
    manly~brown...

    he talked...
    to my back
    as his words
    swarmed around me
    like nagging bees

    "what do you want for christmas?"
    "just another day", i said softly
    "never heard a woman say
    she didn't want nothing for christmas.
    you don't want anything?"

    as i looked beyond his position
    to my presence...
    i felt the inner most part
    of his being stir...
    ...between us...
    like a whirlwind deciding
    its direction...

    he was...trying to solve
    me...a mystery

    again i spoke, "i want
    ...nothing."
    "well, perhaps your..."
    "i don't have one", i said quickly
    "well, for christmas you should get..."
    i smiled off a response

    i sat...
    he talked...
    i listened...
    polite conversation...that is all
    we had...

    i did not expect it
    did not ask for it...
    did not want the
    interruption...

    i sure enjoyed...
    his polite conversation

    so many...

    unsolved mysteries
    in the history
    of not knowing.

    loved the river in this PEACE.
