I can’t see you
Can you hear me?
Sweater scratches at my skin
Crackling in my ear
from every crinkled paper I hear
Ongoing babble of the tube,
Crowds out the beautiful silence
Of humming cars,
Give me solitude – not the crowd
Give me quiet, instead of loud
Give me the veil, not the shroud
I’ll take the rainbow, you keep the cloud.
I can’t hear you-
Can you see me?
