1257 – “What did you say?”

What did you say?
The other thing most said on a walkie-talkie: “Where are you?”


With walkie-talkie bantering
I call from far away.
I talk but you’re not answering
to what I have to say…

This walkie-talkie in my hand
my chatter seldom stops.
I tell you of my private plan
through hisses, cracks, and pops.

So can you hear me clearly? No.
I keep on speaking, but
what good are walkie-talkies, though
when all you say is, “What?”
