even your silence
roars of your truth and deafens
are all my words null?

#subtext b
not all who wander
take mountain paths sans compass:
note: your guides are blind

#subtext c
from that pulpit preached
truth told slant, muddying facts
and i sit silent?

rock-based construction
makes foundations earthquake proof
a steel roof weathers –
thick walls withstand storm surges
shelter welcomes refugees
