Silver Threads

He recalls
the absence of sound, the very unlikely silence
the disappearance of light.

He is simply conscious of
the circulation of his
mother's hand inside
her handbag, looking

for her handkerchief.
He remembers her
warning to not play
with unknown objects
the variety that explode on influence. Later,

he lies in the dead of night remembering
how she pointed out
the silver threads of the morning light
just the day before
and he flickers
with guilt.
