“Noisemaker”

March 5, 2015

Let’s start small

like a breath, a bomb of exhale.

Steal air from the space around

and make sound. Make it last.

 

It might be the last gasp

ever heard, so let’s push

out from the ground below,

a soft bellow, a curse –

the reverse of your silence,

like children

not seen but undeterred

a penchant for hurt

‘cause what are we

but bodies unlearned,

harms unheard,

a tongue cut?

 

Let’s tell a story,

the one where every bone

is a needle, and if you

want to dress the sex you feel,

it’s enough to get

you beaten, and if you

want to bed the same sex,

it’s illegal, and if you

want to get some respect,

you bleach yourself,

because a Twitter conversation

about a dress is the closest

we get to a conversation

about color.

Let’s make some noise

your voice

takes power from them.

Let’s make a deal.

Let’s make more noise,please.

Let’s fuck louder.

We can suck cock

so even cannibals

get jealous.

Let’s cry louder

since tears tears

are just waves

without wind,

and what we can

do together

will drown

all of them.

Let’s make out

in unforgiveable

places.

Let’s be the alarm

when we’re

all on fire.

Let’s be the

scream

that we

need

more

air

to

breathe.

 

Let’s make some noise

your voice

takes power from them.

 

Let’s make some noise

your voice

takes power from them.

 

Let’s make some noise

your voice

takes power from them.

 

So, let’s start small

with a voice

like a breath

as a bomb

of exhale.
