is anyone listening?

from the silent skittle of insects unseen
and rushing of rivers in uninterrupted streams

- is anyone listening? -

your words are drowned by mountains of noise

details upon details

each
clamouring for attention

your attention, mine.

- is anyone listening? -

your consumption your needs -
you are floating with ease

as words fall to stubborn ears, as
worlds fall

of unheard
beauty.
