quiet

all is quiet
sometimes too quiet
the walls talk
i try not to talk back
i would rather listen
i hear a deep silence
it makes me cry
i don’t know why
my tears are a deluge
of ancient ghosts
sitting shivah over dying intuitions
longing for rebirth
they enter the wall
through a mirror
and wait for the silence
only they can fill
