Where is Silence

Written by: Frank Guglietta


Silence from my 
breathe exhaling smoke
As the bud taps the tray
as the beer swigs the throat 

All this noise
Noise in a dark room;
noise that echo’s 
when even soft

People keep talking
Horns keep screaming
Buildings keep collapsing
Mouths still complaining

I talk
               I talk to myself
wishing for silence
