This piece is based on the "Igbo" meaning of "chi". To mean a personal, spiritual guide believed to determine the destiny, sucess and failure of the person or individual. It is a mystical assistant from birth through death. Most sucessful people are believed to have a good "chi". I hope you enjoy it.

"The Woman Across the Room" is a poem within itself. My persona creates a poem about a woman he has spotted at an upscale restaurant. This poem is about the woman and the poem that I made about her.
