-tacet-

Eyes shut mid-melody

I fear the sound of silence as

 

day by month by year I let the rests in 

crowding, crowded –

 

my next note has fallen off its stave.

falling notes • danmir mercado

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tacet is a Latin term in music indicating that an instrument or voice is not to sound during a movement or a long section; its literal meaning being “it is silent”.
