He speaks slowly, honestly
Labors over which words to use
Which words to leave out
The words are always failing him

He moves carefully, purposefully
Is cautious with his eyes
Deliberate with his hands
His motions inadvertently jump ahead of him

He laughs unintentionally
Perhaps it's his nerves, she thinks
but spends little time with the idea
Aware of how quickly
One's perceptions
Invalidate another's intentions
