Shush . . . Just Listen . . .

I want to revel in loneliness and madness

Listening to Beethoven, Chopin, Wagner,

& all the other dead bastards

 

Maybe they understood

Silence as well

 

Leading men to that strange harmony

Of mute voices with booming concertos

Sending rage and sadness through the ages

 

Or maybe they were just killing

Their own madness

As well

 

It doesn’t really matter
