It’s been quite a while

It’s been quite a while since I last
Absorbed any of the sounds out there
So ripe for the plucking, not stuck in
The loop of mood regulating song
Here then – a bird chirping, a door closing
A child screaming as leaves rustle in the wind
Behind which window are they muffled and
Where can they breathe free? Those silences
Tip Toe. Clickity Clank. Rusty nail on a plank
Devoid of meaning but oh – it can still fuck your toe.
