The Silence Remains Unbroken

The silence remains unbroken
The roaring crashing booming silence
Remains unscathed and intact
His ears are ringing his heart is pounding
The pen-people wordmongers
Watch breathlessly from the bleachers
But the poet cannot perform for them
He is packing up and leaving with the circus
He has put all of his stubby pencils into a cigar box
He is taking his show on the road
Perhaps he’ll see another town
Perhaps he’ll face another crowd
But until that time
The silence remains unbroken
