Where’s that hush now?

I hear the raising 

The narrow gasp

Sliding over

Widening and screaming

The war hurtling itself

Drum beat upon drum beat
Where’s the hush gone? 

It’s in the inner scream

Drowned out & deafened
I’m clutching at my ears

But still, this hush

Is screaming
…and I huddle down

Into the quiet. 
Letting it run along my throat—
This is an intense helplessness.

All of life is.
