Over and Out

Mouths speak, ears hear, eyes see,
Brains interpret symbols, but
Meanings twist and drift like rising smoke
Wavelengths and bandwidths alter from
Transmitter to receiver
Present, past or future,
Imperfect – never perfect
Lost in translation
Poor interpretation
Of tone and words given different weight
Different sense, syntax misunderstood
Mood and voice of verb
Case, gender and number disagree
Word order in disordered thoughts
And feelings turn truths into lies:
Lines open but
Communication closed.
