A MOMENT OF SILENCE PLEASE

A MOMENT OF SILENCE PLEASE mammoth misophonia like monarch butterflies he’s hard of hearing ~ resolved to turn sound up nails on chalkboard multiplicity of bongo drums she hears everything the clink clink of spoon against bowl the chomp chomp of each major bite piercing the night this acute butterfly must flee or fight teeth ground down tongue bleeding she kisses her man good night 7/16/2017
