Hear

too loud is
everything
these days

radio voices
too much
then silent

background music
unbearable
distracting

like a fan
going full tilt
in my head

news readers
lips move
saying nothing

children playing
too near
for me

smug neighbours
grass cutting
on power mowers

road noise
on motorways
irritating

migrainous
headaches
pound

beyond measure
out of control
too loud
