Poetry

play it loud – crank it,
let it speak out – higher, higher.
play it hard – vibrate the mouse off my desk…

…faster, faster altecs hum – louder,
rattle the blinds – one more time.
let it flow – inside,
outside of you – and listen.
can you hear voices?
singing for you – boogaloo?
Want to dance – tap tap,
feet under your desk – bobbing head?
Grab the mop – two step,
in the kitchen – pas du deux.
play it loud – crank it,
and the voices in your head…

…won’t be you.
