No More Listeners

June 5, 2008
By Morgen Campbell, Lower Lake, CA

There are no more listeners.
They turn away and forget to listen.
They use to come in crowds,
But now only one or two appear.
I stand looking and see few,
I look forward seeing none.

There are no more listeners.
To hear my plea.
My voice echoes back upon my ears.

Listen….

I beg to hear the talk of those who listen…

There are no listeners.
My voice falls on silence.
The silence is deafening.

Listen…

Before my voice is gone.

Listen…

Silence, the loss of an art, now forgotten.
