My # 19 for National Poetry Month


i seldom hear the you

in your call.

it reminds me a bit of a star trek transporter,

not that i would ever step into one.

words deconstructed (read destroyed)

on one end

sometimes to be reassembled

on the other,

but sometimes not.

and like a faulty transporter

words fall into pieces

their meaning lost

in the ether.

ps--our show opened on Friday. It is good, but I am tired. I have a matinee today and then things will calm down a bit and I can get back on track I hope.

      You have learned the magic of using words to paint the images that our minds will ponder.

      Angels are on the way to you this morning ps

      Audrey - your poetry skips along at the edges so carelessly. So good. Glad the show is going well.

      My words get lost to my family members sometimes because for some reason, they don't understand what I am trying to say. Beats me why!!

      Voted up.

      So creative and it is so sad that the words fall into pieces. How great it would be to be able to materialize the words :)

      Sometimes in talking over the phone the words are there but the rest is lost, distant. Congratulations on your show.
