I have felt your beating heart beat next to mine
I have adjusted my breathing
So that we may breathe in time
The 8-counts, off beat
Staccato at double speed
And our voices and our laughter
And our strange brand of sanity
The words I use confuse you
Falling on one deaf ear
You hear half the word
And reproduce.
I smile at you.
Patiently I inform you
Of the pronunciation
(You know the meaning)
When harsh sounds collide with soft ones
They are always, always, always
Casting shadows of the truth
On our illusive/elusive chameleon lives
You thank me for my patience
I say no need, no need
You apologize for everything
But I should be
I should be
