in lieu of an orchestra screaming melodies of worthless expulsion into our hollow heads MAG

By Christine W., Holmdel, NJ

the funniest thing -
I can’t remember her voice.
I forgother laugh
they say true friends are never apart
I don’tagree
my heart beats for her
in a rhythmic mode
1 2 -- 1 2--
pause.
there’s something missing
it’s the wailof my friend’s sadness
piercing like a needle
beautiful likea raindrop
I feel deaf.
the world could be muted
for all Icare
sound is worthless
when I can’t hear my dear friendsmile
