speak
to me

tell me
a story

a story
of yourself

a story
created
as you speak

not some
canned
response
gleaned
from the media

please
do not
hand me
some greeting card
with your rapidly
scrawled
signature

give
me your
originality

your
true self

do not
rely
upon those
who have spoken

most likely
misspoken

before you

their
quips

their
jibes

are stale
and trite

but you
have a chance
for spontaneity

here
and now

we can
converse

share
ourselves

if you would
just look
up
from that
device
in your hand

that device
upon
the wall

that information
is not real

we are
real

nothing else
exists
at this moment

come on

let's
innovate

look
into my eyes

communicate
your true
thoughts

your true
feelings

I shall
listen
and respond
in kind

with only
you

in my
heart

in my
mind
