A high pitched drone

21 Dec

I get up most mornings to

a high pitched drone

as if the world’s batteries

were running low

as if there had been an emergency long ago

and no one thought to shut off the alarm

as if this were the sound of my own mind

off it’s track but still turning fitfully around

as if this were the sound of air escaping

from a hole which grows larger every day

as if it mattered

just one of those things

this electromagnetic wheeze of a sound

nobody seems to pay it any mind

and the crows, well the crows always have something

to crow about

I guess it’s just one of those things

those things that tell us

nothing is as it seems

it is a lot less interesting than that
