Implication | Yvette A. Schnoeker-Shorb

He is a kind man

who doesn’t wear

the stereotypical white

coat, though he still

takes notes, observing

her as she speaks.

A polite fellow

with a narrow tie

and broad smile,

he suggests

she might be



but he never

uses those


simply says

she seems

to like



in its place

all the time.
