Heart thoughts need voice

Why is silence not honoured?

Why can we not be in another’s presence and wait?

Wait for the words to be primed by reflection –

to spill forth and overflow from the heart.

Instead

we become a cog; transferring external motion to engage with another.

Engage in ‘interesting’ conversation, letting our mouths carry sound;

competing for knowledge – knowledge by rote.

Society perceiving this transaction as intelligent.
