We cannot sing

We cannot sing in praise of silence.

Like underwater hymnals,
the bubbles locking into place:
your pursed lips
your cyanotic skin.

Don’t breathe.

We each have a hand in escape.
For unwritten dreams
lose context in the margins

Trying to find air in the blue rule: super/sub

Many faces without mouths: We cannot sing.

One thought on “We cannot sing

  1. I really like this; especially the lines “For unwritten dreams / lose context in the margins.” So many levels of interpretation here. I could read this over and over again and get a different visual every time.
