Noise Bang

By Mike O’Connell

we are tiny things
so it becomes necessary
to make big noise bangs
demanding the attention
of other tiny things
and the artificial civilizations
they presume to represent
terror creates a vortex
spinning in the centers
of our wee brains
dispensing fear
uncertainty
as it twists inside
dislodging
even omnipresent deities
in its frantic wake
a video game that
plays us
with no controls
we(usually) survive
the horrible things we
propagate
making the next big bangs
just another wave
in our surging seas
of madness
monitored by a curious moon
and not much else
