Your indifference

is manifest

in the untimely pause

between words

of your sentence

and reveals

the invisible presence

of a newly erected fence…

that in its nascence

reeked of permanence

has now been exposed

in its absence

as transient

In the penance of silence

now remains only the essence.…
