“The Trumpeting Silence” (a poem by KPKeelan)


Through the heart-rending cries of pain,

the wailing siren

pouring through millions of lips

the silent blood,

the retching soul…

a tiny twittering-

…could be the call of a baby bird

cries hope!

In the raucous enmity of competing ego,

the vulnerable disintegrate,

the gentle become non-entities,

sub-human replicas of life:

cannot be seen, cannot be heard.

Through the muffled silences of despair

in the emptiness of the overfed,

the starvation diet of progress-

a cataclysmic hubbub enfolds

in a black hole devouring all!

A heartbeat sounds,


declares itself,

cuts through

the death that surrounds it-

and says hello!
