55% of conversation is body movement.
A body groove sent from me to you
38% of conversation is vocal inflections
for audible inspections to cage in
the speech I engage in.
Don’t fear the silent treatment.
Fear what I’m misconveying
In 93% of what I’m saying
The things you’ll miss
If I text you this.

This is a delightful mix of reasoning and rhythm. Thanks for the fun in thinking and poetry.
Thanks. I’m always amused by what’s lost in Texting, IMing, Emailing, even phone calling.
Me too! I refuse, in most instances, to abbreviate and code my communications. I suppose I haven’t much choice when it comes to twittering. What a great name, twitter. 😉
I’m envisioning a video with 93 seconds of silence and 7 seconds of poetry 🙂
🙂 Now to figure out what 7 second poem deserves 93 seconds of video. hmmm.
I love this poem. It’s so witty! 🙂
