April 6 : Easy Way Out
Wait. Did you hear that?
I was told to listen, but I need help.
When that blessed silence comes,
I don’t want to open my ears to anything else.
The force of effort to strain against it defeats me.
So please come as a clanging cymbal instead,
or a break with tradition.
Part the hours, stop the clock
so that I incline my ear and
look you in the eye.
