LOST IN THE NOISE
(3/5/19)


the lead
singer
explained the lyrics
of her band's
newest release

equality

egalitarianism

basic human
rights
for everyone

salient points
all

then
after a few
more questions

answers

they played
the group's
latest hit

I couldn't
understand
one

fucking

word

she screamed
in some unholy
guttural spasm
like a woman
possessed

all of those
quiet
perceptive
comments

buried within
a cacophony
of apparent
pain

and she
seemed
like such
a bright girl
