The Sound of Nothing

The sound of harps played by virgin hands,
the falling of sparrows from innocence,

the orchestra of a thousand silhouettes,
the rhapsody of dying (and death),

the high-pitched songs of malice and contempt,
the chorus of crickets about to rest,

the breath of a newborn about to see
that living on two feet
is a parody, 

the humming of a lotus to a harp-playing lass-
it is the sound of nothing, it is the sound of impasse.
