Poem: Communication

By: JD DeHart

emptyroom

I raise my eyebrow at the dog
and he (she?) does not know
what I mean.
When I hold you close and you
make a sound, does that auditory
phenomenon mean what I hope
it does?
When I lower my voice, what
is the ultimate effect?
Maybe it is only an empty room
and a voiceless voice.
