Pythagorean Silence (an excerpt)

1.

age of earth and us all chattering

a sentence or character
suddenly

steps out to seek for truth fails
falls

into a stream of ink Sequence
trails off

must go on

waving fables and faces War
doings of the war

manoeuvering between points
between

any two points which is
what we want (issues at stake)

bearings and so

holes in a cloud are minutes passing
which is

which
view odds of images swept rag-tag

silver and grey
epitomes

seconds forgeries engender
(are blue) or blacker

flocks of words flying together tense
as an order

cast off to crows

-Susan Howe
