"Listen"

Listen carefully, carefully to

the silence, silence,

It is telling you something,

Something, about our condition,

Condition.

One can rage, rage, against

the dying of the light, light

Or one can go gently into that

Good night, night, knowing full

well that one has never left.

***

Alone I sit now in the blackness,

In the darkness and silence,

At peace,

Knowing nothing, not being,

separate from the universe

to know anything;

Free of both self and other.

Two stray pets dumped off

At the humane society

For lack of an owner.
