he who heard it

by he who heard it

twas the anthem of
trumpeted by silence

heard by
him alone

thought of as
the next step

in a quieter age

that would have been enough


because of the time

in which he lived

he had to write

“silence is the anthem of solitude
and always what comes next”

on Facebook

he also wrote it on a piece of paper
took a picture of it

and posted it on Instagram

later, at a press event
he told a woman named Ice
about it and showed her his picture on

when he went home, he checked out how many likes it got

a lot; comments too

he read them, and responded

the mice in his apartment didn’t even know he was there
