Melissa: Too many conversations seem dead from the start.
Liao: Don't you think this is a good example?
Melissa: I'm not sure.
Liao: What makes any conversation 'alive'?
Tim: Maybe we need to look at the agenda behind it . . .


DIEALOG  - a graphic poem by T Newfields

Repeat after me . . . over and over . . . 
Master each phrase perfectly . . . 
Imitate everything . . . 
until falling asleep or slumping over . . . 

	TOM:  Hi Mary!  
	MARY: Hi Tom! 
	TOM:  How are you? 
	MARY: Fine, thank you. And you? 
	TOM:  I'm fine too! What do you do? 
	MARY: I'm a wife-secretary-stewardess-
	      mother-overworked-underpaid-
	      miniaturized-marginalized-part-human. 
	      How about you? 
	TOM: I'm a big-businessman-doctor-solider-important
	       overpaid-priveledged-fat-imperialist-beast
	       smiling-with-sharp-pointed-teeth. 
	MARY: Oh, that's nice. 
	TOM:  Yes, it is. Good to meat you, Mary.
	MARY: Yes. Have a nice day!
