Wise men say: 
only fools—and so on 
and so forth. 

Wise men also say:
time only flows where the 
entropy grows. 

But the hardest part 
of holding back
is knowing 

we cannot speak away 
that numbness 
which disobeys the lungs.


Prove you were here, 
they say. 

Sign your full name 
to this statement.

And date it.


All the words come 
with such blinding halos 

we cannot make out
the context in the background.

But where talking  
cannot solve the problem

who are we, 
the blind, to insist

that listening 
should perform that trick?
