For an Undeciphered Writing System

O Rongorongo, when will you speak again,
rescind the silence of your thousand mouths of stone,
break apart, and let yourself be known?
O Rongorongo, say when you will atone.
In all these centuries, you’ve let no one know
the words you spoke when talking all alone.
It matters, because we make the difference
from what you mean in what we’re shown.
