The Sign


Please do not place anything
on the ventilators

the sign in the library said,
as if the slightest sound would
affect their lungs, cooling

the stillborn sleeping in packaged
cocoons, waiting for someone
to sing them a lullaby.

But no-one will come today. And
they will sleep, hearing only silence
in their dreams.
