The rupture of a centuries-old fissure, and the noises one hears in the dark.

Noises in the dark Part 1

You hear it too,

don't you?

It skitters, restless,

Like a mouse in a cramped

corner.

A rapid, scratching whisper on an endless loop.

You try breathing,

You try breathing, pacing,

You try breathing, pacing, squirming,

You try breathing, pacing, squirming, sobbing,

You try breathing, pacing, squirming, sobbing, meditation,

You try breathing, pacing, squirming, sobbing, meditation, inebriation,

You try breathing, pacing, squirming, sobbing, meditation, inebriation, and finally! --

You try breathing, pacing, squirming, sobbing, meditation, inebriation, and finally! -- in exasperation you realize

she can't escape.

she can't escape. and neither can you.

And maybe you'd rather

And maybe you'd rather you didn't.

And maybe you'd rather you didn't. After all ...

when you are alone in the dark,

what could be worse than

Silence?
