NIS (4 September 1915 - 14 April 2005 / Youngstown, Ohio)

Silent Screams

Suffering is silent
Makes no noise
Muter than air:
But it is there
Misery has no speech:
Has a slant of the shoulders
A certain way of walking
Something about the mouth
A look in the eye:
Only the poet speaks
Listen to him, she, or them
You cannot heed
The silent screams?
There are things in us
Deeper than hell
Wilder than dreams
