A Moment of Silence

remembrancer


Silence echoes through a cacophony of excuses

and pointed fingers we've aimed at each others eyes

A minute of chosen darkness as our cold hands cling

To the imagined support of numbers

Lit by swaying stars who suddenly preach for safety

The breath we suck through tight lips coats our tongue with dusty promises

As we search franticly for an escape

to a future suddenly snatched from former strangers bloody fingers

by a preventable leaden rain storm

Echoes fade with a swiftness we hope our memories emulate

as we scramble to start yet another triage
