Bid-Ask Arbitrage

Bid: Coffee

Offer: Silence

Bid: Coffee

Offer: Silence

Lunch? No reply.

Appealing counteroffer: Park?

Ah, I see the game you’re playing.

Reciprocal response: cautious entreaty.

Drank the Kool Aid, too sour. Acidic.

Vision explodes beyond the mechanics,

The gears of our tacit negotiation.

Phantasms convoluting in a sea of trichroic something.

I continue, convalescing, regrouping into myself.

You’re still away in dream world, dancing impossibly.

Goading tease, you. No ruth of which to speak.

You, a water sculptor when you know my velocity.

As I mentioned elsewhere, I wear a lot of hats. Currently, I'm interested in VC data, early stage startups, and journalism. Previously I've been a blogger, designer, researcher, startup founder, (temporary) college dropout, connector, occasional branding designer and amateur chef.
