request for silence

let’s make a formal
request for

in the unnatural
world of alarm clocks
car horns, radio, television,
incessant conversations
of co-workers on speakerphone

a constant craving
for an absence of noise
grinds against my grain
producing a pumping,
thumping behind my eye
then stabs my temple

turn off the car,
shutdown computer,
kill the lights, idiot
box, and music makers

give in and listen
to the rain hitting
the window
