Giving Pause

And we guess at each others motives
holding on to ghost
as though waiting for them
in some spectral sitting room.
And where conversation flags we cheer
and where silence fills the void
we hold our breath
giving pause
thinking
this is the move
this is the reason
as though something so complex as motivation
could be distilled
into one word examples
waiting to be pointed out.
