all day.

she talked to

no one.

oh yes,

her mouth surely opened

and closed.

Fish like.

And the words

came out-

but they were,

after all,

just words.

Her vocal chords working

just the way they

should.

making sounds making words making sounds

making words making sounds

 really –

just sounds.

all day.

all around her

people doing the same thing.

all day.

she watches

their mouths their lips

their tongues their teeth

move

sounds more sounds

words less words.

all day.
