Curiously Intimate

Curiously Intimate

On the conference call
you see the attendees
in their headsets
in their cubes
looking at the screen

And you hear one voice speaking
and the occasional
exhalation, the rumble
of life's passage
from one whose mic
is too close

You feel for a moment
awkward, unwilling to say
that the rumble makes the conversation
hard to hear

Because you are so caught up
in the intimacy, the closeness
of breathing
