Among Them

among the dark things
            came another sounding like them

looking about
                        searching everywhere
            till every corner heard about it.

and all came stammering over
            in collective voices
                        to give their two cents
            and to see who was commended

yet in every word
                        and every proposal
and every breathy second
did they ever really know him
or stop to ask him about it?

                        when the world sings—
                                    it seems like everything’s in question—
                        but one nod
                                    a smirk
a tiny suggestion (from him)
and all is stopped—
and the world itself is put into question
and its answer is rhetorical,
obvious, unmentioned…
