poetry from another dimension

speaking….mind and heart

instrument panel of the soul
(the voice)
indicator lights blinking
what’s turned on
or off

speech of the mind?

or the heart?

or

does this song emerge from a seat
on a rickety fence

dividing the two…

one from the other…

or

does it spring from the seat where
mind and heart speak as one
real talk
mind and heart speak

as one

take your seat
a teacher once told me
perhaps this was what she meant
it was she
who taught me this hearing
differently

i love to hear you talk
every word seems
infused
with new meaning
i hear you
the words seem
real
sprung from a seat where
mind and heart speak
as one
