The Scarcity of Silence – Author William Wright, Jr.

 

His time

Was better spent languishing

In the bittersweet foam

And bone-white silence

 

Beyond

The full-heart chorus of kin

Rife

With their myths

Of unfettered pride

 

His time

Was better spent

Drowsing in peace

 

Beyond

His fellow man’s lash

Their verse

Ever-lively, yet stale

 

His time

Was ensnared

Passive

And loyal to all

 

To the restless hordes

Who dared

To lend

Their hollow words
