Creating a Moment

across opposite seats
her dark eyes
as only brown eyes
she was curious
then i turned
my stare seemed
the sound of two men
in conservation
to open ears
privacy cannot survive
on public trains
yet there is the opportunity
to engage
to take a chance
to know another
human being
a stranger….
mapping their mask
hoping it might slip
creating a moment
terms and conditions
need not apply
tasting the nectar of life

By  Paolo Michell

About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
