Treasure Island

Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

Silence


Silence: never talks back
making you feel small;
Just stares back at you,
understands all

Silence and a cup of tea
early before there's a dawn
Shreiks and screams
but there's not a sound

Just keeps on falling down
tripping over yesterday's promises
Humming unfinished songs he
can't remember the words to

Remember when you wanted to?
now you never do
And after all the nows and thens
it all comes back down to silence again

Silence and a cup of tea
early before there's a dawn
Stares back, never talks
understands all

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
