drowning in silence

the bird
screams
in ignoble disregard
for the inherent bullshit
that coats the earth
in sticky pockets
of filth

it doesn’t preen
it’s feathers
just bellows to the void
as it grows in dimension
until it
eventually
encompasses all

i get it little one
i’ve just lost my ability
to scream along
with your dulcet tones
barely managing to clear
the blood from my voice box
in simulated suffocation

drowning in
the impenetrable silence
of another day spent
swirling around
the clogged drain
of vespers preaching
human incompetence
