Liaison


Watch those who liaison
with awe. Impressed by one such
I pick up a conversation.

He is talkative, Delves
into the subject with ease.
Lists numbers and figures.

I listen with attention.
His gestures and body
language simply impressive.

I deter from interrupting, lest
his flow gets arrested. For a while
follow him with appreciation.

My interest slowly wanes
as I sense his repetitions
turn exhaustive.

I yawn, wriggle in my seat,
become restless exploring
ways to stop him.

He refuses to notice
my uneasiness goes on
with a gusto,

it is how negotiations work
Persisting with a skill
and exiting with a result.
