silence of nature

Plinky.com told me I was on a first date

[news to me]

when an awkward pause ensues and wanted to know how I would break the silence.

Silence
Why must it be bad?
The absence of drivel
inane clutter
avoidance
denial
Over-emphasized laughter
This silence had its birth
in context
What went before?
Did she fart?
Did I ask her
whether she’d ever…
Well…
(You’d better fill in the blanks)
Once again
the myth of rationality
That we know how we’d act
That we’re all calm
and logical
when all about
are dreaming
despotic
tyrannical
Organizing the world
to stay in control
The ultimate arrogance
conceit
denial
We are but accidents
chance possibilities
and collisions
In the silence
we discover
options
Breathe in the nothing
Breathe in the silence
Who are you
choosing to control
this glorious, generative moment?
