I feel like I must think
So I turn off the music
I feel something needs attention
So I drop everything
I lie in silence hearing only
The fan blowing coolness over me
But my mind goes blank
Nothing comes to mind
The voice calling to me
Telling me to listen
Has fallen silent
I try to think of what it was
But the rest has fallen into oblivion
Weird--I know there’s something I have to do
Something I stopped the music for
But my mind ceases to remember
I just lie there
More sunlight pours down my window
The sounds of distant cars disturb my silence
The noise becomes busy until such a point
Silence is forgotten along with what
I was trying to remember.

June 28 1994
