Scissor Sistering silence,
Singing skintight semblances.
Splicing semiotic structures,
Seeing startled sentience.

Some sonic-searcher seeks
some solemn-sighted snare.
Some short, sharp shrill
Startles squiggled squares.

Somehow squinting stirs the stars
Sometimes shapes switch ‘n’ swap.
Something silhouetted spews some sparks,
Something shimmering spins a’stop.

Something stationary suddenly starts,
Something stunted sprouts and shoots.
Somewhere scoundrels shape to skive,
Somewhere salesmen shift sharp suits.

Someone somewhere starts to shout,
Someone sleeping stifles a scream.
Something somewhere shatters,
Someone seamlessly slides from the scene.

Silence solemnly seeps
outta sound’s
sure steady sleep.
