Retribution ©Syd Weedon, 2022

Still –
The World is still.
Everything is quiet,
no trucks or planes,
no lonely freight
train whistles
in the night.
I’m still.
The air is still.
The cat is still.
It’s just the crickets
and tree frogs
keeping the music
If the rest of the world
got this still
we’d all disappear –
a pleasant thought
but unattainable.
The stillness
closes in on me.
