L.E Bowman ‘Complicit’

Just remember,
when you bite your tongue,
when they command silence
and comply,
you are wrapping your fingers around the throats
of those who speak.

Just remember,
when your eyes shift and close,
when you pretend to not see what you see,
when your ears her fireworks instead of bullet rounds,
and you continue to ignore screams,
that it is you
who is now
the loudest sound.

That deafening boom of silence.
That thunderous roar of apathy.
