maybe just/silence today

maybe just
silence today
gladly play
dispirited part
for depleted heart
aroused by rumble
of angelic ensemble
lyre unstrung
and broken drum
just maybe
today silence
play gladly
part dispirited
for heart depleted
by repetition of rhyme
renewed before
open closure
of love’s door
bolted by mangled claw
the elephant waits
for more than just nuts
in the green pool
of homophobic waste
