silence

s

Words formed

Flow, with metronomic rhythm,

Monotonous,

Consistent cadences

Stultifying, then

Suffocating silence.

She weeps

In stillness,

Does silence.

While words

Trade their

Whoredom,

With finery

Finessed,

Fascinating the

Foolish, with

The sounds

Of pyritic wisdom

Autumn in hyde park

A

Wilting veins

Of leaves

Crumpled brown,

Swirl together.

Kissing briefly,

Touching, as

The swirling wind

Scatters them

Into huddles

Beneath the seats

Or, piles

For toddlers to toss.

While newly naked

Trees stretch,

Leaf freed limbs

In the dancing wind.

Sounds of decay,

The symphony of this

Season, settling into

Autumnal sleep.
