Little Miss Homo Sapien's Cave

The Bigger Picture

Certainly, there is something

unspeakable in the unspoken

Words are nowhere to be found,

and so no sound is hearkened

But what is curious is how this

could be at times too sufficient

to know that it is much better

than to break the silence.

Body language is the universal

jargon, afterall: lift a finger,

and that’s all the you weight you have

to be guilty of. A leaf falling from

the tree, and you’re not moved to tears

at all. The earth revolves on its axis,

and we pretend keeping our balance

Freewill is freewheeling, but we refuse to

take it far by driving perchance

Even the black hole does not

make a sound, as it wallows

in itself out of the collapsed star

Even the deaf-mute understands

that what could not be heard

nor said is merely mutual love.

Plucking the strings of the

high-strung guitar, strumming

the strands by the eyes’ tuft:

Action speaks louder than noise

unless talked has walked the world,

then it’s nothing but sedentary voice.
