The Wisdom of Silence
Forcing the wisdom of silence
is the grossest gesture of all,
as to shout for silence above a racket

with your hand.
Though obscuring the wisdom of silence
is to embrace it far beyond hope of propogation.

observing the subtle gleam
of seeing all's transparency
move into the eyes of others.

in the measure of it's own world-
