"The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do."
—Apple’s “Think Different” commercial, 1997
“Crazy people are considered mad by the rest of the society only because their intelligence isn't understood.”
― Weihui Zhou

the cacophony
of capitalism mutes
the euphony of birds

you can still hear it
the harmonizing of birds against
the white noise of construction

The author's comments:

“In order to see birds it is necessary to become a part of the silence.”
? Robert Lynd
