This view reminds me of a Norwegian fjord
though I’ve never seen one in my life.
The magnificent rocks
that form cliffs surround me in all directions.
The wind is still, absent.
The silence does not comfort me,
I am searching for the lowest, slightest noise.
I realize that I am the only one
capable of making any noise.
I let the power of my vocal cords escape my mouth.
Was it a scream?
Was it a call?
I could not tell.
I listened for the echo
I do the same thing again,
This time, the power comes from my stomach,
The echo stays the same.
I am exhausted now.
The cliffs and rocks have forgotten already.
