The Silent Bear No Witness

 

 

The silent bear no witness against themselves. 

Therefore I shall be quieter than zero gravity:

unspeaking,

with Buddha-like determination and dignity. 

 

Not even one rogue dissociated word

will sneak out from the corner of my mouth.

 

In silence, I will merge with the cosmos:

become the nothing that my heart yearns for.
