+ONCE – WE ALL KNEW BETTER

I have taken

by an invisible bidding

my heart and my soul and my self

deep under this peaceful water

where I have no ears

to hear

the human-made tumult

above

So little quiet waking slumber

so few paying attention

lost arts outnumber

those that are known

Exchanging heartbeats

of the living

for the clamor of

mechanical clunks and roars

Making the night we have come to

believe

is day
