another machine doing the same thing

they whisper

what was he like before words and all that

other stuff started coming out

those arrangements

does he think

he makes music

he makes lists or he doesn't

it's simple

 

another machine held

at his ear

they whisper

in the whirring clicking purring silence

as he speaks

into his cell
