like any government

there were years of silence

but like any government

when there is something

it wants you to know

there will be a way to get through

& I’d grown easy with that silence

comforting to have the ease

but i bought the ticket

took that long ride to go find

if there was anything new

of course there wasn’t

but the need for an audience

listen to the old show

no attempt to be true

behave in any way new

& both of the originals are gone

just the step in hanging on

I’m getting used to the quiet again

not waiting for the call

but knowing sure as tomorrow

one will come
