Ain’t No Misbehavin

Indifference is an extreme

 

form of cruelty.  So many suffering

because someone has to suffer

 

for the greater good of someone.  Even if they are

 

just sheep staring blankly at each

other, while a pack of dogs

 

demolishes the herd one by one in the trusting

 

bleats of the blinded badly. Nothing communicates

death as loudly as silence. 

 

It’s poverty of person: a dishonoring of the self—the one

 

that’s a part of everything else.  In the void of meaning,

so it’s all meaningless senselessness.  Now, that too is

 

nearly gone.  Real gone, as if voice were

 

some allusive abstract thing, but all you gotta

do is write that shit down.
