Silence (1 of 10)

Out of silence... monsters—
long sharp ink-black teeth
always ready for a nibble
to always nibble
their horrified prey—
blood in the darkness
   blood in the darkness
muted screams.
Mistakenly misshapened
by the maker of
bees, gods, and men
in silence borne
in silence wept
in silence.
