Meditations on the Vishuddha Chakra

Meditations on the Vishuddha Chakra

Who Knows?
This boy
not quite two
knows. We follow him
from room to room
hanging on every sound
bite of his pretend speech.
Now he answers the phone –
his inflection perfect.
Now he’s added pauses
for listening.
Now – unsettling –
he’s added laughs.
What wit – inaudible –
pulses down the wire?
He knows.
We don’t.
But, we laugh, too,
dropping the KhKhKh of Knowing
into his bright Now.
