MISCOMMUNICADO
(5/6/14)


they both
talk
to the past

they have
decided
the other's
personality
based upon
prior performance

those likenesses
are etched
forever
in the unforgiving
granite
of memory

there
can be no
new beginning
unless those
images
are chiseled
away
and fresh stone
is exposed

they have
the tools
but they use
them
to attack
rather
than to advance

when
someone's face
is only
a mask
of their mistakes

what really
can be said?

they
have been
reduced
to saying nothing
because
nothing
is understood
between
them
