Instead of Talk

Extraordinary, really, when
we manage to convey
one tiny tittle, jot or whit
of what we want to say

in any way remotely that
does justice to the thing.
Perhaps that’s why with you and me
instead of talk, we sing.

Not that we expect to make
more sense this way too soon.
But we have lovely voices
and we rather like a tune.
