underneath

someone drew a line.
he or she may or may not
have been on television.
but everyone saw
just the same.

"this is how much
you can show,"
they said.

there was
a diagram:

the line cut
around the throat
like water
around an iceberg,
so you only see
the face.

keep the rest
submerged. this was
the idea. no one
complained.

the unspoken
drowned
in silence.

will we ever mourn?
