The Silence Police: Mountain biking


 


 

THE SILENCE POLICE:



A desire to get lost in silence.


too much interaction


people.


The world likes to talk,


An insistent, perpetual need to talk,


There can never be silence,


Silence is banned,


tacitly enforced by all.


For


silence amongst the loud, encourages questioning


The silence police.


Silence with your own thoughts, instils fear


Amongst the talkative


For you might be thinking the wrong things


Because they don’t know


And what they don’t know worries them


My thoughts normally only reach as far as


Why is my bellybutton fluff always a different colour to the shirt I’m wearing !


But it is deeply frightening


To the silence police


So talking is encouraged.


Every day, exactly the same:

 


 

A WARM SHIVER:


Escape, necessary:


Amongst trees


Drink in the scent of the forest


Earth, pine, sap, needles.


Roaring silence flows through the branches.



Not a being in sight




Moments, cross legged on the floor.


Fingers through the dirt


Tensions unchained



A warm shiver



Silence
