Aurality~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Aurality

sleep

Man Sleeping by Morris Graves

silent mornings make no sense
every waking needs noise
clocks and coffee pots
birdsong and bone creaks
the cough up of phlegmatic dreams

so this silence must signal I’m dead
unless it just means
that it’s not quite yet morning
for soundlessness perfectly
suits my insensible nights
