4 walls, a ceiling, and a covered window instead of bars - my nursing home cage.
by the hobbler
....and I can hear it!
on and on it plays, over and over again! a relentless high pitched, synthetic, flute - like muzak pumped in over the nursing home speakers! - the sound of a bird attacked by a rodent! .
.and it keeps on playing playing, playing,
it never stops for even a moment.
I beg the care givers to turn it off
but they tell me theres nothing playing,
yet I hear it! hear it!
ba ba ba bouncing, ba ba ba bouncing
off the walls of my cell cage wall
, till I can bear it no more.
I cover my ears
but my mind reconstructs that caphaconic rift
out of ordinary sounds -
water running, car sirens, brakes screeching, people screaming!
WHERE THE HELL
is it coming from I ask!
WHERE THE HELL is it coming from!
' 'Dah dah daah, dah de de dah, dah dah daah, DEEE dah.
Dah dah daah '
AND on and on it plays! over and over! hour after hour! day after day!
leaving me utterly insane
.....my O.C.D destiny
