re'percussions


it's the silence that grips the throat  
when the explosive force  
rumbles through startled body  
and shuddering echoes finally cease  
it's the dead still that follows  
just before the screams  
when all sound is muffled  
and muscles are not yet awake  
that momentary pause  
before the tide of hell breaks  
when everything was normal  
that's what I hear  
and it won't be quiet  
that silence
