Silence

Silence

Listen in silence
to the beating
of your heart
to the purr
of your breath
to your hands
as they brush
together
or your thighs

Listen in silence
to the creaking
of the wooden seat
upon which you sit
and in the silence
recall
the last kiss
you gave
the last loving word
you spoke
your last gesture
of generosity
