Deafening Silence by Brett Lightwait

dead football manager
is awarded
one
minute
while wholesale
slaughter
of a
generation
warrants two

between the cracks
of
gunfire
pauses
longer gaps
for
football not mortars 

in each town
monumental
remembrance
for which
no question
nor answer sought

for the years will not
rekindle
the call to
sense
less
loss

lest we remember
the harvest
of souls
to feed
foul greed
fodder for the maw
that still
knows
no rest

..

brett lightwait is happy to be labelled as an anarcho~zen~pagan~quaker.
among his influences are the liminal, the numinous, the i~ching and his MUM and DAD
currently a resident of doune carloway on the WESTERN ISLES off scotland, where he keeps the 13 moon dreamspell calendar and is part way through an apprenticeship as earth wizard
