As the Sun Rises (10)


I do not like loud noises

or sudden sounds

they make me jump and feel afraid

like today when I heard a car horn

beeping at a biker

nearly missing his metal frame.

maybe I don’t like loud noises

because of motives behind them

they come from anger and alarm

and when I hear them my eyes shift

from the mountain to the mole hill

from the rainbow to the rain

from the conductor to the audience.

today I cringed and felt small inside

when I heard those sounds

but tomorrow I turn my eyes back to you

and feel my shoulders drop

and my heart fill again.
