The Angel of Dead

October 31, 2008

A sort of solitude

 

Caused me to listen

To an unheard voice

 

The language of stones

Whispered illegible

Invisible, thrice

 

Stoned silence

Yells in the air

Each letter a siren

 

The fragments of life

Shattered in the mud

Faded dim-light stories

Of three flower buds

 

 

 

The Dead

They have chosen me

The Dead

They’ve singled me out

From the Living

To be

 

To be

their speaker

their messenger

their angel

 

Each of them

Is telling me

History

To be told

The Rabbis, the babies

The young and the old

 

Tell them

They say

Tell them:

I was someone

 

Tell them

They dun me

To tell you:

There has never been

Another time

 

The Dead do not praise

Neither the voiceless*

 

So I speak

Their plain speech of desire

So I speak words of wisdom

Although their voice

Never will be mine

 

Everything

I am speaking of

I am not

 

Since I am still alive

I am nothing

 

Even tough I speak

Because I speak

 

My hands are tied

My tongue is tired
