I noticed a hunger, yesterday
It was a hunger to be quiet

But, when I tried to find a place
To go, to be quiet...

There was no direction
To go in

In the kitchen
My wife
Was rattling the dishes
And hammering nails into the wall

In the living room
My grandson
Was playing violent video games
On the TV

The cars were rumbling by
And my neighbor was mowing his lawn

Even this computer
Was blowing
A noise

Even my breath
Could be heard
My ears

I wanted
To run
And hide

But where
Could I run?

And where
Could I hide?

Where could I go
Where the noise
And it's irritation
Could not go?

I could go in
To the sound of OM

I could go out
To the sounds of nature

I could let out
A scream at the world

Then, I realized
That the noise
Of the universe
Is everywhere
