Noise

we make news out of lipstick, travel

and choice of ice cream.

we make news out of nationalism,

feminism,

rationalism,

patriotism,

and ‘lets be offended by everything’ isms

we make flashy news

we are the people of today

our self worth

rests on the opinion of others,

on magazine covers,

on ‘how many more overs’

on frequent lovers

we are the average man in a cue

that nobody notices

we are you


we are deafened by the silence

of our own voice.
