The voices behind the ringing

From the mouths of fools

and the lips of sages

The same story told

The casual observer interprets

for deaf and mute pedestrians

accommodating martinets and miscreants

The fool oblivious proceeds his folly

The sage’s thesis lies shattered

Each shard reflecting

horrified glare of incredulity

and they are dissolving

your frenetic obsessions

in powdered glass and pools of acid
