I caught her quiet in a lounging tee-pee
Dropped my jaw and started over,
Tried to scoop up my chin but my tongue
Hadnt tasted her name in ages
Overeager wondered "Kelsea"
Was wide-eyed shocked and barely
Able to face her after the silences
Beautiful and mystic, transient but shiftless
She showed surprise and focused moments
On me frozen before speaking.
I sat beside and we shared little
But that was a lost appreciation
Four minutes and she got called
Said off, and
stood then offered me a hug
That was both a hello
