"THERE IS NEVER SILENCE"
Always,a tremor.Vibration.Interruption to solitude
Train rattling.Car swooshing.Bicycle wheeling
Even in the darkest cave- batwings/fluttering
And when you import silences,they come with personal histories
Sound and sense fail,so utterances ,chants,moanings in labor
Always we are tied to one another.Drag your chattering cliches
into consenting conversations.Some seek only silences.FAIL!
In Monasteries,by Sacred Sites,in hospitals and hospice
practicing little silences in preparation for The Big Sleep.
Even then,shudder of bones,growth of fingernails
Each wing shudders -bird,bee,butterfly
Silence is invisible.It,too,wants to fly..
