(huh..???)

Sit around in whispers 

Come closer 

Let me hear

Talk in darkened corners

Away from waiting ears 

The walls will whisper, whisper

Tittle-tattle they will say

Echoing secrets to eager, waiting ears

Sit around in whispers 

Come closer 

Let me hear

Talk in darkened corners 

Away from waiting ears

Words are in the twister

Concocted; rainbow hues

Syllables are twisted

Words are given moods 

So sit around in whispers 

Come closer 

Let me hear 

Or the walls will whisper-whisper 

To eager, waiting ears

I remember this…was supposed to submit poem on theme ‘walls have ears’ but never did…1998 ‘me’ was very insular…too withdrawn and defensive
