Random Poem:

thunder
jayyyyy

the start of spring makes everyone hot and bothered
 1
I lay in bed thinking about everything and nothing
 2
all at once
 3
as a cacophony of sounds swallow me up
 4
 
 
outside; the newly-homed-for-spring-time cicadas and crickets create a clamor
 5
competing to reach the highest decibel
 6
just as the two sets of laughter, possibly due to the humidity, does
 7
 
 
upstairs; a loud clap of laughter almost identical to the thunder minutes ago
 8
which both resulted in zero water drops
 9
downstairs; murmurs, sounds,
 10
ones that my brain cannot understand
 11
 
 
accompanied by a rusty pianist attempting to play to the tune of “Jesus loves me”
 12
the obviously flawed notes clash with the distant sound of police sirens
 13
 
 
all of this at once and everyone has someone
 14
and yet here I am, accompanied by no one
 15
my thoughts are thunder and for me it always brings rain
 16
