I was thinking of trying cacophony today and realized life IS cacophony, just a bunch of mismatched sounds and it's kinda up to you to pick out the notes you most enjoy...
The Silence of Joy
I forgot to hear it
the joy of life living
round me whether I
command it to or not.
I was too busy noticing the neighbor's chainsaw
the dog barking at the chainsaw
and the dryer that I was surprised to hear
over the chainsaw
Oh and the catchy
intro song to Jack's
favorite show wanted to be heard too.
I was trying to write a poem
and all I could think was impolite phrases,
because i wanted quiet
because it would please me and help me think,
because all I was thinking of right then was me.
And with all the noise I forgot
just how boring that can be.
