TINNITUS DRIVEN
(7/30/19)


the ringing
began
just before
the divorce

a harbinger
of disaster
soon to come

the noise
intensified
somewhat
during
the ordeal

she's gone
but that
high pitch tone
never left

it's like
the sound
of an electric
charge

something
winding
to a frenzied
conclusion

an
energy source
powering me
through my
days

I would
miss it
if it
were gone

it's my
constant
companion

however
I don't
miss her

in the
least
