shhhhh... listen

Not a distance,
just more than a man since he’s gone.

Somewhat sculpted by anger
and an uncommon touch,
I hear he talked
to the floor with his horn.

The same note never played
the same way again.

remember his silence
between the sounds?

Taught others to speak
for themselves

At the end
he still had more to say
in a new way.
So What.
