Poets United Midweek Motif/The Silence After
The Silence After
the air horn screams bombs explode all is silent
tires screech bam a misty morning
a clear afternoon someone runs a red light the motorcycle hit
we remember for parties he always made tiramisu
cars slam together a crash twisted steel
more cars join in a pile up many hurt or died
on the golf course a round of nine lightening strikes
the whine of the ambulance racing to the scene taking corners on two wheels
medics shout for help the links are silent the respirator breathes in and out
turned off nothing to be said the house is full
friends and family in the silence after the horror of what has occurred
is real at last no you can’t call a friend the music is up to you
