He arrived, wrapped in lapis
Shape shifting before my view;
Hands outstretched, clasping mine
I paid the man his dues.
‘A deal’s a deal good sir;
Well met upon this fate,’
Pressing coins we intertwined;
‘Hurry onwards but gently; for I am now quite late.’
He laughed ‘paradigm’ – you silly girl,
What brought you here thus far?
You’re unscheduled as of now, and not going very far.
He obliged me safe passage & crossed the banks,
without another word,
Thankee sai I whispered, for your kind gesture
The echo left unheard.
