What is silence?

A cat's paw on your eardrum.

The deep symphony of the vacuum.

There is no sound.

 

Just a Wall in between you and me

Like a curtain of stolen breaths and shards

of stars that were once our dreams

 

At the opposite ends of the table.

Our plates are full:

the fruits of your labor near the hot stove, but:

our hearts are like the glasses you have filled

With water. Always half empty.
