98. When I talk

When I talk with God
I cramp His conversation.

When I talk with a man
We cramp each other’s conversation.

When I talk with a woman
She cramps my conversation.
And in return
The human in me strangles our conversation,
While
The divine in me admires her conversation.

When I talk with myself
I overfeed my conversation
And kill the real thinker in me.
