Reality as a pet hate

Reality-when excessive

Sounding overdriven notes

Drives men to take cover

Seeking options to quell it.

 

Reality- negate or posit it

Or turn your back you may

Drawing apps and new ways,

Plying for situation control.

 

An earplug- born of needs

To nix the sound extern

Is deafness made wearable,

As if world has no words for you.

 

Or an earphone, still better

To fix a sound you like

As if it’s only one you’d hear

Though the world cries out loud.

 

Blindfold in its symbolic richness

Can hold the world at bay, a dark bay.

Window-blinds shut in

To let in just a beamlet;

 

Still reality stays and it says’

“You hear that you want

You see that you want,

But there is more and more unturned.”
