Loud, Louder, Loudest

Originally posted 1/7/2012.

Some days
are just one
turbocharged
evocation
after another.
Frankly,
I could do with
fewer of them;
not every moment
or action
has to have a point
and I’m tired 
of almost bleeding out
so often 
after getting stuck

by the ones that do.
Today give me instead
a pure road
with no toward
and no away from;
give me

a Grand Car Sound System
Of Love And Holler, give me
all 
the loud, louder, loudest

three-chord songs to play,
and let me drive along
playing them
at maximum volume
with no reason to be
driving 
except
that’s where songs like that
sound best.
