Double Meanings


the lines buzz
competing with our words
electric conversation, electric telephones
we double up
our ears
straining
this telephone company needs
a little bashing
buzzing our conversation
each word approaches
a two-level

split
heart
intellec t

explore the psyche of words
touching the peripheries
of emotions
leaving the core unsaid

you laugh across the lines
electric voice
I smile with my eyes
marshmallow sword of words
poetics on the move:
electric affection in this conversation
we speak in double meanings
electrical buzzing, electrical feelings
the soul in eternal
trepidation

a two-level

split

double meanings, we are afraid
so electric this conversation
in telephone burning emotions
