Speak

An old couple stops you in the street and says you’d be perfect for the job…

A man not merely older than 70, stopped me on the street. He says “people like us must still continue to live on”. The last of his words trailed off as he stares into the full western heat, shielding his eyes from the sun. The woman quietly presses a tiny flower seed down at the bench not too far away.

“She’s trying to hang in there, kid It’s hard not being able to be as you use to. Please teach her how to speak once more. Her voice was the most beautiful one I’ve ever heard.”
