How we long to speak,why are we dumb?


How we long to   speak and yet we’re dumb
Fearing   we shall sound like ignorant fools
Waiting for our first   communion

When will  we feel safe, not quiet nor numb?
Alexithmyic,affectless,how cruel
How we long to speak, why are we dumb?

How we odd ones value every crumb
How we want to learn , to use our tools
Waiting for our first   communion

By the weight of politics undone
This was never taught in any school
How we long to speak, why are  we dumb?

Economic miracle,. God’s come!
No log  like this was ever made for Yule
Nor for our own first   communion

Stay away from Logic and George Boole
Poetic life needs metaphors not rules
How we long to   speak, why are we dumb
Struggling for  the lost communion?
