The Speed of Love
Nick Winkworth

The Vaguery of Us
Lisa Nielsen

Inspiration Piece

There is constant motion
There is the speed at which you think you know me
There are sinkholes
That turn into minefields
Then there’s us

Cornered in a café
A conversation ambling
And dissipating
Into the piles of china and silverware
And the squish of restless shoes

Fingers form steeples
Mouthing a whisper

If these lips could talk
They’d want an answer

    The words capture the motion in the image, the image suggests the theme of the poem. They fit together perfectly!
