Oh, hush!

Ear to ear,

Eye to eye,

Streams

Of letters

ooze past,

spun

anew by each handler.

Man-handled words,

Meddled and fingered,

obscene

Only because of what you see

And what I heard.

What color

is a rumor?

I wonder

Is it better

To be wordless

Quiet

Let all be

Unspoken.

Let what rise

Unbidden:

Quiet!

Peace!

Please!

  1. I like this very much. Man-handled words, meddled and fingered – lovely phrases. In some cases it is better to be wordless. But not in this case, with this poem!

    “What color/ is a rumor?” I don’t know exactly why, but this line resonated with me. This was very poignant.
