The other end

Is anybody at the other end?

One acts
    to reveal
        to cut through
            hiding
                 layers

 

peel
    peel
        peel

yet by revealing
    what has been taken 
        away
            in that act
                of revealing
                    remains hidden.

Is any voice there to answer?
    is there any answer?
        is any possible?

Is there a there?

We peel layer
    after layer
        away

layers
    keep
        disappearing…
            one
                two
                    three
                        …
