i'm sorry, what were you saying?

trying to articulate difficult things is the top reason people become mimes.  it takes so long to think of just the right phraseology to speak your mind as it sounds and not have the words come out distorted through the filter of vocal tones.  the inflection tinted by the interruption of secondary thoughts.  hesitation at whether to speak or not. 
like a breath of cloud:
a wire, curly cord.
line segment
splice. dial tone.
words hung between

black licorice rope tied
a game over hangman's

i remember why i like broken cuckoo clocks
the silence,
absence of time.

we were two mimes in an invisible box

muted. speechless. unanswered.
