the fool is known by his bright optimism

a blazing plumage of vivid rainbow colors

that are an annoying chirping in the silence

of the earthly depths

while a wise bird wears dark silvery

tufts of feathers like a starling amazed

by the semblance of galaxies

swirling overhead in the night sky

one chattering and chirping

to the destruction of all peace and reflection

and the other still in the grasp of a calm

that reduces cacophony to resonant low presence

and both sense the other in sibilant waves

see each other in shimmering mirrors of sound
