talking with someone who already knows

he needed an answer
he needed my expertise, my experience,
then he talked at me about
his point of view, his solution,
his analysis.
ill-informed, ignorant on the topic.
I waited and then asked what the
question really was,
not being clear at all.
he was paying me to listen,
red in the face, seeking an answer
from me, he finally paused
and stopped talking.
that was a good start.
