To Fill the Silence

A child forbidden to laugh
dressed in black clothing too mature
for her age. Forced to sit still
the silence was a vacuum and her sealed
mouth couldn’t take the pressure.
So it cracked and spilt a short chuckle
that spluttered over the church
like rain over drought
and her hand over her mouth,
eyes searched for scorn,
only to find
smiles she thought they had lost.


Biography
Juhyun Tony Bae: I am currently a student studying English at Mount Royal
University.  I have always loved language as an art form since my childhood
in Korean and now, English. I hope to constantly improve my skills in writing
poetry and fiction. I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
