Another Day


Photo by Harun Tan on


If speaking is belonging,

he belongs to silence

silence makes nests here,

on top of the china cabinet,

in serving bowls,

under the blanket chest

his chest rumbles without words

sentences begun drift into silence

words melt away like candle wax

consonants light his eyes

but silence owns him now
