abysmal silence

when she spoke
it was like a radio
tuned to static
her eyes flickered
as if she tried
to tune
to a frequency
decipherable
to the strange creatures
braying
before her

she had
a pretty smile
that sparkled
in her eyes
when the weight
of the world
was turned towards
another poor soul
to sputter and spark
in the spotlight
of abysmal
silence
