loud and clear

are you there…

yeah…I’m here…

can you hear me…

yes…I hear you…you’re coming through loud and clear…

testing…1…2…3…testing…123…do you copy…

I said yes…I copy…no need to get all professional…Roger this…Roger that…I hear you…

you can never be too sure…

of what…

whether you’re being heard or not…some folks go their whole lives not being heard…just silently sitting in a corner…not a word…never speaking…only silent prayers…they only talk to God…humans are off their radar…

how’s that…

they gave up on being heard…after many attempts they said the hell with it…and they just wander ’round…going from place to place…town to town…doing menial tasks…washing dishes…mowing yards…breaking down boxes…they just plain gave up on everything…

I see…

do you hear me…

yeah…loud and clear…

I read this story once ’bout these women whose pain was so great they had their tongues removed…cut out…couldn’t talk…some kind of protest…

what good did that do em…

they had no joy in their lives…

’cause they couldn’t talk…

no…it was what made em not wanna talk…can you imagine carryin’ on like that…

different strokes…

right…

right…

I’m gonna hang up now…and not say a word for the rest of the day…I’ve never gone a whole day in quiet ‘fore…

you do that…tell me tomorrow how it feels…

you hear me…

loud and clear…
