world noise

alarm sounds
music in the shower
into the ute
tunes blare

phones ring
banter and laughter
the noise, the noise
constant

scream and stomp
squeal and roar
the kids do not stop
even when asked

bitch and moan
they don’t listen
why don’t they listen
when I scream

footsteps and murmurs
eyelids blink
I can hear you
think

a moment of silence
is all I require
all I ask
all I desire

cannot unplug
as to sleep, I need sound
desensitized to a noisy world
never sleep without a sound

there is no silence
in this world
no peace to be found
in this world above ground

carry on
in the white noise
apologies for squinting
while you were talking.

world noise
