The Day The Earth Awoke | September 12, 2014

I couldn’t hear a thing
Couldn’t separate out
A single discernible sound
From the cacophony surrounding
From the mess of tangled thoughts
From the selfish noise
The endless prattle
Continual and pointless rattle
From heads that contain no brain
To speak of and
Yet still remain
To somehow
Continuously speak

I lost my poise
I yelled as a swinging
Ten tonne ball destroys
I yelled to splinter up my voice
And it worked
Everybody in the world
Stopped wittering on like fools
The air stopped vibrating
Birds stooped, mid-flight
To listen to the stillness
As the blinding raucousness turned night.
A porcupine ten thousand miles away
Stopped sniffling and rattling her spears
And cocked her ears to hear
The golden beauty of silence
That lasted in the mind
Of the simple and the wise
For seven stupendous seconds.
Before another soul uttered a stilted phrase
“What just happened?”
Shocked and amazed
And shattered that small miracle which peace assumed
And the madness volumed and resumed.
