Silence car

i was born in a silence car
with only her heartbeat for a drum
no ringing bells or false alarms
i swam through the day’s eclipses

i was born in a silence car
but the sounds infected my tiny ears
& the world gushed into that tiny space
where first i breathed and lived

i was born in a silence car
underneath the surface of where we are
connected to the earth by sonic rays
shuddering like an unlit ghost

i was born in a silence car
it slowly revolves around this star
one day i’ll return to cosmic air
and the radiant clang of oblivion
