hushed

playing second fiddle
in an orchestra of one
out of tune accompaniment
in sour notes
of flaccid failings

a footnote
on a wall of hastily
scribbled declarations
forgotten in the
metaphoric splendor

a whisper floating
in the claxon of sparrows
unintelligible
drowned out in the act
of negligible returns
