Trust

He always has to know
where everyone is,

trying hard
to like the way

you agree to so much
that is outside

in the night
reminding us

of all the other unknown,
unreached places.


Perhaps
in being silent,

you put together
what is most needed,

leaving the words
to themselves,

to be
understood.
