Silence is too much



No one hardly talks at all
they
just write their lives on
the concrete wall
and call it
artwork
but
if the heart doesn’t work
and you don’t converse?

Now
Cohen
babbled on and on
about the grace of God
and the Baptist, John,

I wonder which is worse,
the introvert or
the other one,
the one that just goes on
and on?
