Vantage Point

If you find me sitting in silence
please remember
there is no silence
The earth is eternally settling
Like an old house at 3:00am
the center of the planet pulling on
hardwood floors
The highway, trains, and trees
rattling the concrete foundation
If there is an earthquake in Prague
it makes a noise here

If you find me sitting in silence
please know
I am only trying to hear more
The world is loud and getting louder
like a stubborn bourbon rant
by a southern urban boy
who doesn't know his ass from the floor
but thinks he deserves
the prettiest girl in the bar
There is no silence here
There are only listeners
