Is it a sign of things to come,
or has the time come for me to sign?
I stopped grunting long enough
to hear the door close.
What was it you said to me
on your way out?
You spoke to me in English,
French and Spanish at least that’s what
it looked like when I read your lips.
I was mute for far too long
and you only ever learned one sign.
I guess I’ll just have to ride
out this little quake alone
and hope my vocabulary
improves over time.
