Ephram Pratt Exits into the Silence

Ephram Pratt Exits into the Silence
by Jack e Lorts

Tucked into an opening
between silence

and nothing,
the signs on the noise

of a threadbare,
buoyant tunnel of air

sing with the voice
of wilderness

plagued by ice,
an incendiary of bliss,

decaying soundlessly
above a cycle of soft jazz.

Let it mingle
with a juniper of joy,

tangling silently,
softly with

broaches of turquoise
and jade,

blanketing the entrance
to a venerated wantonness

of doggerel,
elliptical and enduring.
