from a work in progress: Memory and Silence (81)

he spoke to silence

the remnants the shadows

gathered into the ghosts

he played across the wall

they were his shadows

his ghosts his play

like dark French caves

the walls distorted

the shadows bent away

from him into a dark

into his larger fears

into his silence
