LATE BLOOMS: Dyscommunication

Words are sound-symbols
filled with meaning and feeling,
but that that is said
may differently be heard
as by the hearer filtered.

Messages are missed
when at messenger you’re pissed,
outrightly dismissed
even before a word’s said –
and the words are but noise heard.

Minding not reason,
twisting interpretation,
blasting intention –
all this widens division,
this all fuels confusion.
