In The Silence

A silent apartment ,

a dark room ,

something is wrong

not the way it ought to be ,

space is curling up at the corners

like torn wallpaper on a damp wall ,

there’s nothing he can do

nothing he can change ;

he remembers ,

a large zinc table

and saying ,

” this is a hacksaw,

these are pliers ,

this is a hammer and nails ,

a hatchet ,

a chisel and

a cut-throat razor,

the genuine article “.

there’s nothing he can do

there’s nothing he can change ;

Blank eyes ,

a silent apartment ,

a dark room ,

nothing.
