Not Words

We ordered dinner

in Marrakesh

in sign language

The language barrier created simple comfort


The illusion of quiet commonality

unlike the world of words

sighs and groans welcome

for there is a great deal in a not word

careful calculations

audio approximations

seeking to understand

what is being said,  could of said, not said

there are always other

words, choices, questions

leaving only

torn tiny torrent of torment

in the final cold cut notion

of being alone

the gulf of not said

loaded not words
