it is quiet here

the loudest sound is the rushing whine in my ears

the scratch of my cheap fountain pen

the crinkle of Lulu the canary on her paper

we have no access here to the alien world

of talking heads, sound bites, bitter video

a world of suspicion and pain

for so it seems when i am involuntarily subjected to it

it is quiet here
