Communication breakdown

When two sit
Face to face
And seek to engage in
The act of conversation
It fails whenever;

Both speak in unison
Not waiting for the other to finish.

When one appears listening
But has already made up their mind
About the other.

When both are mute
Apparently this one is a given.

Or whenever one talks
The mind of the apparent listener
Is only bent to the readiness of speaking.

This is the beautiful act of
Communication breakdown.
