Muffled Music

Bittersweet snippets of life slip by me,
Blithering sound bites of existence
Breathe through the speakers,

“I have a dream…”
“Wake up it’s time to listen to..”
“Therapist pumping through your…”
“1, 2, 3, 4 pack your stuff get out the…”
“Cried a river and drowned the whole…”

Free verse silence,
Unstructured silence,
Liberating silence,

No, silence is crazy,
With silence comes tension,
With silence comes anticipation.

Waiting for the noise,
Waiting for the music,
Who stopped the symphony?
