Conformity

I heard a shout,
and then one more.

I heard a shout and then one more
and those who were blind
stopped, and turned towards the voice.

I heard a shout,
and then one more.

I heard a shout and then one more
and those who were blind–
afraid, picked their sticks and stones.

I heard a shout,
and then one more.

I heard a shout and then one more
and those blind were throwing sticks
towards the voice, throwing stones.

I heard a shout,
and then one more.

I heard a shout and then one more
and when I came close to opening my eyes,
the voice died; Silence! Finally, no more noise.
