Breathe

p9s6g695h5

Pandemonium, clamor and din,

cacophony, caterwauling.

Heads are spinning, make it stop!

Where is tranquility?

Walls close in, smother

day in, day out

we long for

silence

Peace

Inspired by a recent afternoon in an airport baggage claim/check in area. My first attempt at the poetry form called nonet, a form that I, as a novice poet, particularly enjoyed.

  1. The repeated “in” rhymes in the beginning make this feel even more chaotic and uncomfortable, and that last line of “peace” is very effective.
