Barbara Cogswell
At A Time Like This
let me make it clear;
my preference is silence
stifle the surreptitious hisses
the subliminal throb of machines
tap out no machine gun drum roll
or lock step cadence
clank no bayonets
let no rifle rip the air
for God’s sake
still the pipes pitched wheeze
and please;
no speeches
