Take That, Longing

(in a world without sound)
You can still scream
I mean
open your mouth and
flex your eyes
and your nose.
Wiggle your fingers
and waggle your arms.
Flailing is descriptive
just do it right.
Paper and pencil,
once charades isn’t fun anymore.
Just remember about
body language and sign
or whatever.
doesn’t need air
just pay some attentions.
When people plead the fifth
on their vocal cords
or ear drums I guess,
you can still slap them
and bap them or pinch
and hug them and kiss them
caress and confuse them.
Body language is more effective,
you know,
than words.
Stop being lazy.
