singing bowl ㄹ

the next consonant :ㄹ, in a series of poems about a singing bowl, written after Robert Okaji’s shutters poems. go here to read the original prolegomenon.

at the apex drone
we are quiet & still.
the drone diminishes
beyond whisper to mute
whereupon we begin
to talk about silence;
only without it
can we talk of it.
the limit of its drone
being not the ears but,
unheard, unseen like
static in the air
its persists,
affects what we
little perceive
with the pace of
our lungs & pre
-conceiving brain.

a penny for your thoughts
