dr_con Posted October 31, 2013 Share Posted October 31, 2013 The Conversation It doesn’t matter if you are here we talk anyway and sometimes just sometimes I hear you wrong No different than if you were right in front of me or if you live or went beyond beyond it just becomes even more personal and intimate The long one goes on for years it comes out of different mouths strangers lovers and madmen struggling to make sense of something without I can hear those guttural low notes as if they were yesterday the fights the flailing people forgetting their humanity or I add emotion to the silliest things A respirator A IV drip A casual comment And it doesn't matter in the longest the fear is gone gone We said hello on a Fall night when on the edge of the porch light I heard footsteps and stepped deeper into the conversation seeing leaves plummeting from the big tree saying this and your memories of green everything that flashes red and yellow syntax for your words and we get it right most of the time.
