dead conversations.

“You know?”

only now, when
your sentence is complete,
am I of
any interest.

we link gazes
(the way we
used to link
hands & fingers)
as you try
to coax a reply
from my lips.

but
I have
stopped
listening.

“No.”

“Okay.”

it is
the silence
in between
that matters,
& only that.
the rest
is too
much &

not

enough.
