perhaps it’s their language
slowly devolving into a flock of birds
the exchange of obsessions between        planets
auditoriums of empty chairs

AUTHOR'S NOTE:

“Attrition” was written during the constancy of California traffic, the noise of which is so prolific it becomes a sort of silence, like an applause slowly leaving an empty room.
