She

       Entered the room
Not knowing
       Merely sensing this

       Particular
Vibration of the air
       Which tended to

Predict.

A few feather light
Seconds later she
      Noticed him

Standing up
Just about to
Leave the room

[An Unavoidable

          Momentary Confrontation

Was approaching.]


Their visual fields
       Swallowed each other
In a manner which

Seemed slow but
Probably wasnt.

[The Consumption was colored with uncertainty and spontaneous decision making]

Eventually

      She chose to look and so he did
[This one and only time
Together]

And so she smiled.

Gently.

          A heart softening
suprisement and
               Disbelief

Shifted through his face ----

And

An an equally gentle
[But Not well rehearsed---
A little clumsy ]

Smile

Was given back.


And then blood turned into
Fire

Hurting to the most ecstatic state
.

Long it takes to put it down. Long it takes.

But
Eventually...
            
             And then no more

Smiles.

No more smiles.
Remember.
