Songs Without Music–Poetry: Silent Noise

in a crowded room
that’s nearly empty
noises so loud
they can barely be heard
voices and laughter
silent and dark
walking and dancing
on an untouched floor
hugs of compassion
in a place full of hate
seeking for what used to be
that has come to an end
sitting in the corner
and wondering why
1998
