How do I tell if you are reading?
How can I tell the words form meaning?
Or know somehow, something is changing?
How can I know you hear my speech?
Or whether the sense of mutual ground lasts?
How do I seek your glances?
How can I make this something more than it is?
How can the words be never enough?
How do I reach out with faith?
Or believe that somehow, somewhere, this here matters?
How do I know?
Are there more here in this webbed space?
Wait? I don’t even know if you cared?
