another machine doing the same thing*

another machine doing the same thing
they whisper
what was he like before words and all that
other stuff started coming out
those arrangements
does he think
he makes music
he makes lists or he doesn't
it's simple

another machine held
at his ear
they whisper
in the whirring clicking purring silence
as he speaks
into his cell
