What shall we talk about – what’s up
(we’ve got a little bit of time)
and who will speak and who will follow whom
(what’s new upon this kitchen table top)
and shall we circle round and round
(with eyes and ears and touch and tongue)
giving little pats-on-the-head
(and will we choose to work, eat, dance or sing or sleep)?
Who shall we please and who not please
(tomorrow and tomorrow’s ace
encounters, meetings, semaphore)
or hate or care or love, respect,
or look across the surfaces
and feel for sudden truth - and trust?
