I See Thinking

My friends believed it was a party trick.

It wasn’t.

Strangers would sit in front of me, then begin thinking of something. The thinking energy would spiral above their head to form images that I would relay back for all to hear.

It was fun

Until it wasn’t.

Until the thinking energy would overwhelm me, causing me to stress. People’s hidden thoughts would appear that disturbed me

So, I went to the mountains, to breath fresh air, engulf the natural wonders, to enjoy no external thoughts.

Until I heard something deep beneath the ground.

It was wonderful.

Until it wasn’t.

“Yes”

Ralph leaves, fossicks around and returns with a nice shirt on.

“Is this better?”
