Sip Sip


Sip
Silence
Turn the page
Silence
Scroll down
Silence
Take a bite
Silence again

This is an outing
Both him and her
Silence
They came together but they remain in
Silence

Is it hate?
Is it unspeakable?
Why is there such
Silence

I always thought when two were in love
There was never
Silence
There shouldn't be
Silence
But a willingness to share every breath
of life that we so gracefully take.

Sip sip,
Silence.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
