Kept

I love watching you think
You roll these thoughts around your brain
Sometimes slowly
Like you’re savoring the taste of a golden beet
Sometimes quickly and all at once
Like you’re chopping onions
Sometimes you rein them in
Like misbehaving children
Sometimes they roll off your tongue and escape their cramped cage
These thoughts shine through
Your tired eyes
And I do my best to lure them out
With limited success.
Sometimes they’ll get sleepy and wander out anyway;
Roll from your pillow to mine.
