I hear the voices but the conversation lags…

The conversation pitched

Leaning to one side

Away and yet

The accousoucity tricks of time and space


And bound the words back again and again

Finding a voice

Within the seat cushions

And bouncing off walls

And becoming one with curtains that

Engulfed with flames


Create die cast shadows

On the wall

Portraying the moments of

What was a private conversation


With all to see

What is

What was


And quiet


But now shared.

Exposed and

Now loudly shared

With everyone

And no one

Because the voices were cupped

The ears bent

And all lost

Never to be heard again.
