Talk

by Christine Fojas

when there is talk
there is the chance
to eavesdrop; do you think
stars converse? do trees
sing in susurration?

we are the most curious
creatures in the wild.

it is a weapon; is mine
sharp enough?

we have a thousand ways
to say absolutely nothing.

when there is talk
there is the chance
to change somebody's mind.
or else nobody
is listening.
