. the silent bird sings .

sonja benskin mesher

quiet all night, then suddenly, the quiet
voice sings. it is time to speak, to make
a mark.

to dash the pencil hard on stone, break
the lead. erase inherited memory, genes

listened, it talks quietly, listen.

cut the paper, brace the ash, rub and smudge,
think again.

think if it had been you.
