Business

The babies are having a conference call.
They have so much to say.
The one with the deep voice
is booming through the screen
to the screeching backdrop
of the high pitched one
and the raspberry blowing one
and the waffling other one.
They have so much to say
these conference call babies.
Ours is sat with his mouth
the shape of a black hole
swallowing every noise and colour.
