Poem of the Week

Noise

can make an ordinary person wish
the human brain had never been hard-wired
for sound. Like rattlesnakes and fish,
we wouldn’t be genetically required
to listen, stupefied, to so much blare,
or need to plug our nonexistent ears
against the churning drivel in the air,
with gusts to sixty in election years.

~ Marilyn L. Taylor
