  • We needn’t speak over the din of the
    Madness that surrounds us.

    No idle banter is required to mark
    A place in our lives.

    With every breath, our two-voice
    Fugue grows in complexity and beauty;
    Bach on his finest day.

    As it should be, it can be heard by no one;
    It is Our Silent Song, our Symphony
    That will never be completed.
