Loud Sounds on the MTA

Loud Sounds on the MTA

The New York Subway rolling and stuttering and lurching and screeching

My morning meditation is jarred open

and proven to be fraudulent

My nerves crawling from the inside to the outside, all over me, and then as my heart races, I notice that one day (too soon) there are worms crawling over my dead body, worms are actually more soothing than

the personal upstaging of my own anger in confrontation to this Loud Sound, the SCREECH and Scream

knowing that the conductor driving this shuttering string of cabs

has transferred her own SCREAM to the passengers, who

without knowing, picked up on the electric, the shock, the outrage, the intolerance

that all of us are asked to accept, when

none of this

is acceptable
