  1. […] eagles rise as birds of mercy refugees on feathered beds scalloping the sky after gunshots and spitting yellow, they face the shadows of silence darkness definite as chalkboards filled with the unwritten morning comes with dust in its eye in their new land dandelions won’t speak reason they too are gathered in vases Written in response to the image and in response to Twiglet #272 "shadows of silence" […]

  2. Shadows of Silence

    The shadow of silence
    moves uncomfortably
    prodding her to speak
    but she’s afraid
    And he’s afraid
    so they hunch deeper
    into themselves
    and wait
    for someone else to speak
    and silence remains
    and the bodies fall
    and evil wins the day.
