Song and Dance

let the silence commence
it’s easier to pretend
words are only the conduit
of understanding
and wouldn’t we rather
keep our perceptions?

I refuse to push
and you will never pull
so we’ll stand here quiet
with the line slack
now and then glancing
across the gulf

and we’ll stay like this until
one of us breaks in weakness
and then we’ll begin
this whole process over again
only I might start to grow weary
of all our pointless song and dance
