Static

She’s tuning out
the quiet of the world
with earphones
that throw echoes
of raucous harmonies
to a brain that sorely needs
something on which to focus.

She’s tuning out
the hollow in her core
with water
made even colder
by the curiously strong mints
she’s been chewing
to rid the bad taste
from her mouth.

She’s tuning out.
