The Invisible Smile
A poem from a dream
There was a little adventurer, a questioner, a curious, nosy girl she was
She saw a man just sitting there, in thought he seemed, ignoring her
What do you do? What do you write? She looked him in the eye
I think of things and write them down for someone else somewhere
A woman comes and fills his cup for what seems the hundredth time
What is the story, what did you write, is it something I might know
He smiles at her and says: "Nothing yet!" As if everything's just fine
You lied to me, you said you write but there's nothing you can show
If this is all I have to do, then I could be a writer, too
He looks around and turns to her his eyes are bright and glow
Yes you could in as much as I could fill those cups
but what you are is something else, and I wouldn't ever know
Dwelling, tossing, pondering, she finally smiles at him
Go ahead and ask me now, don't you want to hear?
A steaming cup, he begins to type, hammering away
Finally he stops and looks at her, she smiles from ear to ear
What are you then? "A writer", she says, loud and without a beat
She has to leave and says goodbye, her mother by the hand
Like a statue set in stone, not moving for a while
But when you look close enough, on his face an invisible smile.
