i went looking for peep holes

21 Aug

the authorities encourage us to play chinese whispers.
it’s called telephone in the united states.
it’s the game where a message is passed round the circle
and by the time it makes a full revolution,
everyone has their own understanding and
everyone insists on it like a lawyer pleading a case.
meanwhile, the actual message hops a train
and does a flamenco variation dance,
glad to have stirred up so many people.
