Aphoristically Yours




You know more than I

So I’d rather listen

If you want to hear from me

That’s all right, too


Some would say

And they are wise

This is the definition of

A friendship


Some might say

It is a paradox

There would be too much silence

For the talking


Well, embrace the contrary

If everyone is listening

There might be fewer words

But greater truth
