Background Noise

Background Noise

Parts of the background blur-
marginalize and compartmentalize.

Listen –

I stand here screaming in the dark –

Don’t you hear me?

As you turn away,
ears closed –

I am background noise
I am background noise
I am background noise
I am background noise
I am background noise
I am background noise
I am background noise
I am background noise
I am background noise

As I bend, blend and sway to the rules,
Getting stuff out,
and letting things in.

Background noise
in people’s lives –

Not important enough to
actually listen or matter

I am background noise

I’m the one
who shapes my life
to fit the needs
love can live in.

I am background  noise
I am background  noise
I am background  noise

— Jerry Danielsen
