Response in Silence

Paul spoke to me through a walky-talky
while he sat on a stone some distance away.

He told me he watched pigs eat
in a farm documentary

and felt his father’s summation
He eats like a pig was inaccurate.

I thought Paul ate like a wildebeest and said so
but forgot to depress the talk-button.
