A further note on silence

(again for Sashi)

The most beautiful silences
are those between words
and even syllables,
the fleeting and fleeing ‘nothing’
between sound,
between fury and compassion,
embrace and let-go,
but now,
reading you
and misreading perhaps
the blankness of waiting
and the interruption
of battery-dead-and-no-charger
was long:
it shrieked!
