distortion

i'm sorry it's so frustrating
to communicate
it's hard to hear you
over the poetry
bleeding from my ears
the voices trapped inside
the jazz of the street beneath
i watch you like a sitcom
queue canned laugh in 3. 2.
i can't see the humor
but i chuckle
belated
at the thought
it's not you it's me
my mind
needs to be free
