Stille nacht (not complete silence), 

but a state in which silence prevails,

neither above, below, nor horizontal

A cock crows at the edge of town, 

its cry reverberates to silence, sirens 

wail through the centre of town, 

abruptly cease, the void prevails

A search for clarity, in gatherings or 

alone, taming the ego, in all its jarring 


Leaving clues, a phrase or two, we 

carve ourselves into mountain rock, yet 

are dead in the blink of an eye, thus we 


Silence is not under patent, yet is the 

enemy of the state; a state that 

demands clamour, confusion, slavish

responses, silence defeats all this
