Awaiting Your Call

Can you speak to the masses

will your words cross the line

From youngest to oldest

will listeners opine


How many octaves

can sing out your tune

Is it seasonal only

or July until June


Is time to speak kindly

of what you espouse

Or pile like kindling

as scraps from a house


The listeners are out there

awaiting your call

Their ears to the ground

—will you bend to enthrall


(The New Room: June, 2022)
