hush now

Hush Now

Do not
sit down
in direct
conversation.

 

Do not
mention the
name of
your heart’s
thunder.

 

Do not
come down
off the
mountain with
your tablets
of stone.

 

Do not
forfeit silence
for a
warm place
to sleep.

 

If you
must talk,
talk in
metaphor,
unless you’re
ordering coffee.
