When everything is in chaos, Everything is crumbling around you, Shattering truth hurts so much, Keep still, the enemy is watching you.
Hovering between the last breath, Before more words are spoken, Silence swallows its victims. Their fate lies in a creature, That eats all thoughts, That numbs all tongues.  Despite its ear ringing
I caught silence once.
I put her in an old marmalade jar.
Then I sat on a stool
and stared at her for a very long time—
hours, maybe, or minutes.
