“No Silence Within”

"Silence: one would willingly
 Consume it, eat it like bread.
 There is never enough. Now,
 When we are silent, metal
 Still rings upon shuddering
 Metal: a door slams, a child
 Cries; other lives surround us."

"But remember, there is no
 Silence within; the belly
 Sighs, grumbles, and what is that
 Loud knocking, that summoning?
 A drum beats, a drum beats. Hear
 Your own noisy machine, which
 Is moving towards silence."

                           - Edward Lucie-Smith, 'Silence'
