Dilapidated Headphones

Head nodding
Back and fourth
To melodies
Screamed across
Dilapidated headphones
Pulsing
Throbbing
Gyrating
Beats hammer bone
Reducing gray matter
To painful mush
Sharp cornered plastic
Cut soft flesh
Bruised
Bloody
But it is relief
From the daily grind
A silence
From the voices
An escape
From harsh realties
Of life lived
On the edge of poverty
On the edge of starvation
On the edge of death
