Silence is relative
There is the silence in the forest spread amongst chattering crickets and groaning bull frogs
or the silence in Brooklyn at 3AM that waifs between the humming electricity and air conditioner murmurings.
Is that silence amplified by the thick humid air?
or perhaps it’s just the residing echo of 2.5 million people exhaling dreams of making it in NYC.
Soon they’ll be waking up to move their cars. Honking and cursing;
Double parking is legal on alternate side parking day.
