The Telephone


 

phone

He doesn’t know how to read and write
but he knows numbers up to ten,
counting on his fingers.
Himself at one end of the line,
The world at the other,
he learned to talk.

Hello, hello!
He can call by heart
With his eyes closed.

Hello, hellooo!
This number 1234567890.
Can I talk to the World?

He doesn’t know how to touch or feel,
colours, faces and scenes
He draws with words.

Hello, hellooo! …telephoning
The World
Ahhh…

The world has fallen asleep
The telephone is dead.
His neck on the table
No voice

Hello?
