Her smile

Her Smile
By J. Keys

Caleb sat and watched, as always. Among the crowd made of both sewage and serenity there was nothing not worth observing. Such a thing is a power, not an act or function of the senses. To see something is to simply notice it; to observe it is an attempt to pierce it with understanding and prowess. It was her smile that paved the way…

She had a look that was cutting but a way that was conversely comfortable; like layers of warm blankets and pillows among the cold but precise beauty of white snow and freezing wind. To discover one suddenly complimented the other –no matter what the order.

She’s not difficult but to say she’s easy would be an insult. The parts that reside deeper aren’t hidden or locked but they require the seeker to never look back if they choose to go forward. It is in this manner that exposes the honorable and unworthy without the need for guards or towers. A manner that is alien to Caleb which, among other things, is partly what makes her so… to him.

Most people either sway or move in this life of rain and sunshine but she just flowed. Most of us in this place have to dodge the bullet –she just smiled and waved as they passed by; a smile that, indeed, paves the way…
