Dogs 2013

AT FULL VOLUME
(9/20/13)


I like
being
in my car
alone

I can
turn up
the music
as loud
as I want
with no
complaints

no cross
looks
or comments

the reverberations
rejuvenate me

when
passengers
are present
however
the level
is lowered
to 2 or 3
at best

the songs
are there
but they're
barely audible
above
the people
and their
chatter

they
distract me
from my true
intent

my car
is my
life

I feel
limited
in my realizations
when caught up
by the daily
diversions
of humanity

twisted
perceptions
of social norms
have been irreparably
imprinted upon
my tiny
mind

the only
limit
of course
is me

I really
don't want
to cause
a scene

to be
declared
insane

so please
keep
your distance

let me
drive
away

let me
play

I have
noise
to make
