Alter States

How do you have a

conversation

with someone who

really doesn’t want to listen

They will smile with compassion

shake their head at the

appropriate time

be it yes or no

even say what they

think you want to hear

But all the while they too

are having their own

conversation

We become people of

who we think we are

rather than who

we really are

We are pushed to

find reasons for

behaviors

when there aren’t

This simple dialogue

of conversation

becomes less

and less

This why we are

living in that

lonely place

Called

Alter States of Head

  1. Oh yeah, tell me about it. This is very common in L.A. You talk to someone and they are looking over your head for a better prospect. Usually they don’t even feign interest.
