It’s been a while
You know it’s true
Since, the term
conversation actually struck
you like that last shot on the house!
You don’t know them
That’s what seduced you
You have no back history
nor any present attributions
that regards them
This is beautiful!
It starts, this conversation phenomena
You physically feel it
Damn, it has been a while
The subject of is no importance
but it’s of great commonality
The vagueness of those
engaging in conversation
makes it even more
interesting, more adventurous
since no lines are drawn,
When was the last time
you actually thought
before you uttered?
When was the last time you actually
spoke out of interest?
out of curiosity?
Escape that bubble of yours
that restricts your talk to
digital pixels, you’re not pixels!
You are way more than little squares
making up the whole!
Your whole is made up of a voice
a heart, a narrative of your past
mannerisms, gestures, features…
Each word is articulated in a way
that fancies your mind, you are actually thinking
Each word is conveyed with an indefinite perception
Are you enjoying it?
Why do they say
we “carry a conversation”?
Carrying implies a burden
some effort exerted to do the act of carrying
Conversations are light
and deep depending on the parties
They can go from talking about
fireflies to political conspiracies
to the silly mysteries of human nature
That’s the attraction, we enjoy
the carelessness of it all, we enjoy
But we don’t “carry” we “engage”
Much better right?
Wait, here’s a thought
How about we say “let’s light a conversation”
Now, that is luminous and oh so
Light that cigarette,
Oh how underrated is that word
Oh how gorgeous is the sound of that
Show me can a
Can it make your thoughts
dance in the haze of smoke
coming from those resting cigarettes
between your fingers?
