a harp unstrung


life theories
unable to join
never thought I’d hear
the deafening silence
can you find
the silence
lend an ear
this is not just
the beginning
pause the show
for a minute or two
stand behind your brothers
wake again to
breed the female
a slow death of air
a baby’s laughter
is the greatest price
of fear
