The Sound Of The Silenced.

I remember the conversation held

between the man in the stylish looking hat

and the woman who had asked him

about his inconsistent and doomed affair

and giving him advice on how to finish

with his lover; the fifty ways she mentioned

and whilst I only heard five that she recounted,

I hung around to listen further

as he pondered on how she would deal

with the same situation.

A moment, a second of silence

before she answered matter of fact,

“If all else fails Paul,

I would make it look like an accident.”
