When I see you sitting in the restaurant
Counting complex carbohydrates
I will wonder where it was I knew you from
And I will give you my regards
When you turn to go
And in these final parting phrases
I will overanalyze the way your eyes move slower than before

Winter morning in the parking lot of my apartment complex
I will be the first to force eye contact
In this dashing, darting deer-in-the-headlight looks
Are growing tired

From time to time when I am feeling trembled
I will unfold all these letters from old friends and lovers
From the of the long ago of penmanship and perfect strokes
And even though I say these notes
I won’t pretend I know any more, any more

Held in hallways
Cutting corridor doors
We will speak these warm words
Half empty, half full

    My OpinionDanielle Anderson is born naiively enlightened. That is to say, she is gifted but would be the last person to say so (she is culeless as to how brilliant we know she is). That is because she is grounded and therfore has no need for adulation. She sings, says, plays, performs life as it is. If she is reading this, right now, her face is red from embarrassment. Articulate and expressionate, a true talent. In my humble opiinion. Danielle, may you realise your globsl potential. Sincerely,

    Loving kindness from Zenophile, aka Xenophile..
