The Absence of Noise

August 6, 2017

A moonless sky:
like Winter, slowly it pulls
all eyelids shut.

The earthly spirits
lie in dormant memory
and dreamless, the globe

forgets all spinning
of measured time.

Somewhere, someone
walking the periphery
of neighborhoods

dissolved in muted
shades obscuring memory
lingers cognizant,

and into Gaia’s thicket
of darkened dendrites

Preparing my heart

on this silent spring night’s walk

for tea with a friend.

An emanation

Of white-hot sparks on the sea:

The moon’s treadless path.

“And through the spaces of the dark
Midnight shakes the memory
As a madman shakes a dead geranium.”
–T.S. Eliot
