Listen

By Mel Trent

Listen

pretend for a moment
that I am gifted with
eloquence and that everyone
wants to hear my thoughts on
topics mundane and profound
who will win the next game
and can we save ourselves
from nature's capriciousness
my every word conveys so
concisely what I'm thinking
what I'm feeling what I'm
wanting you to know but
for all my gifted tongues
and the language at my
command I know that
you are only hearing and
never listening
