silent treatment

silent treatment
could be a way of life
stars shedding
their humble light
on the crown of my head
(today I read that every
minute on a square mile only
one ten thousandth of an
ounce of starlight
spatters to earth)
is there togetherness?
I mean up there?
I know you are here
you know I am here
fire glowing right
in front of us
miles apart
our chairs are empty
though we are sort of
sitting there side by side
nothing more to say
words are hollow
compared to
what must be forgotten
