Infrequently Asked Questions


he is always one step ahead of me one blink of an eye better i have chased him across continents across oceans and across decades every time i think i have him i kick down the door and find an empty hotel room except, sometimes, the smallest clue pointing me in a direction when i finally do catch him it will not be because he stumbled but rather because i have changed watching, guessing, learning, until finally one day i know him so well, i can almost feel his thoughts i can anticipate his next move i jump ahead of him, this will be the day at last i step out from the shadows and stare into his eyes the shock, so alike, he and i in finding him, i have lost myself which is also the moment that i realize that he too is chasing someone a better version of himself more generous, more loving, and always just out of reach someone i would have never have had the skills to catch until now
