sufficient’s dissolution

the last consonant crisp echoless
as if a rock dropped down a well
clacked once against stone walls
then arced into black silence
empty you suggest and I see
but that answer does not seem
sufficient enough to satisfy
so I stare down the well waiting
there must be something there
deep within the earth’s crust
yet the dark silence dissolves
any hope clinging to the night
the words do not matter now or then
what was heard what was said vanish
