could not stay long

I wandered a while

amongst people who did not speak

who would not or could not

venture an idea

notions

whether in long thought

poem or song

but felt able

to whatever I ventured

to tell me I was wrong

though for themselves

offered nothing

I wandered amongst them

feeling the silence as oppression

but you know as well as i

for those with ideas

opinions

art to express

I could not stay long
