this silence

i am awash
in this silence

it accumulates drip upon drip
stagnant waters in the basement

light pours in through the injury
life’s blood pours in through the curtain

an unoticed moment slips by
a precious coin lost
inproperly spent

i did all that i could
and more
i paid the price
and left a tip
