Song of Silence


the population
in the
hallway
its so many
not the truth
and i’d better
stop singing
the quartets
come close
a memory
haunting
this minute
a wind howling
us and them
wrapped and adjoined
searching
enjoy the warning
for what happens next
the lyrics escape me
the setting is clear
so many times
a lullabye
traveling in time
to listen
a thought, despite
the tragedy sleeping
in the right direction
but your cup is empty

TIny Cracks


be careful
there is belief there
morphine
to think upon
chances for apocalypse
the mystique is gone
let the cracks in
tried to go back
why now?
what is calling
the hands of
reasoning
unfinished
an ache we used
to hear
protecting
allow us that
waiting close to
the light
and trust
there is no
reverence now
