the quiet room
there is a room in minnesota that is so quiet
you can hear your blood trickle through your veins
no one can stand it, but I wish I was there
to hear my body shut down
here is a liver
here is a lung
here is the panicked thrum of a heart that is dying
here is the piss and fuzz of the brain
realising it is alone
what does hope sound like?
is it the sound of a sunbeam?
