what's the noise?
is it a foreign movie without subtitles?
the fridge kicking in again?
am i making this noise?
or is it the helicopter approaching
to take me off this
remote island in the South Pacific?
they announce that the being build new hospital wing is sinking,
people paying rent for places that don't exist,
a gravel pit right in the middle of the city, why not?
centimeters or cityblocks
millions of dollars
this silence here
i too have been trying to be quiet
no wonder it hurts and is stuck
it is too loud
and too big
