COMMUNICATION CHASM
(1/30/15)


there's
a deep
dark
distance of misunderstanding
between
what is said
and how
it is said

the fact
of matter

the truth
if you will

seems to be
irrelevant
if not expressed
in a socially acceptable
manner

feelings are hurt

sensibilities
are offended

by what
may be considered
an improper
turn
of a phrase

an irresponsible
inflection

a terrible
tone

the intent
of the word stream
seems to hold
no importance

presentation
is paramount

only the insane

the criminal

the uneducated

seem able
to say
what they truly
mean

the tongues
of the responsible
sober
populace
are sadly tied
with so many
social and political
constrictions
that these people
who probably understand
the truth
the most
seem to be
the most prevented
from communicating
the plain facts
to others

people
only want to hear
what
they want to hear
in the way
that they want
to hear it

they want
reflected monologues
to reinforce
their self
importance

to boost
their egomaniacal
meaning
in the world

all else
is abomination

outlaw

it's too bad
that silence

the turn
of a back

are just
as offensive
to them

the only
answer
seems to be
never to meet them
in the first
place

only
in isolation
can we experience
the simple language
of reality
