Beat (an acrostic poem)

Bashing the drums into a cacophony of percussion

Evoking primal emotions from the audience

Augmenting the movements of the partygoers

Till all their bodies pulsed together as one to the…

Chorus (an acrostic poem)

Cacophony of voices raised

Harmoniously lifting the spirits of those around them

Obsessed with the space between the tones

Replicating structures of sound that evoke primal emotions

Unleashing a common experience

Sending that energy into the universe

Tribe (an acrostic poem)

They were always looking for a place to settle down in

Running was so tiring, and the souls of their shoes were getting holey

It would start with that awkward silence that announced the countdown to launch

But this time there was no moment of quiet in the cacophony of laughter

Everyone deserves to find where their weird is the normal, and that’s how they knew they found their people, their…

Shout (an acrostic poem)

Slipping my voice into projection mode

Heaving my words into the void

Ordering the world to pay attention to me

Understanding that I’m just adding to the cacophony

Though it does make me feel better   :>)

Struggle (an acrostic poem)

So many children were screaming into the void

Resulting in an aural tsunami that came crashing over my consciousness

Undercutting the foundation of my sanity

Giving me a sonic lobotomy

Gone was any chance of getting anything done

Leaving nothingness

Existential emptiness

Chaos (an acrostic poem)

Cacophony of past and future ideas

Hoarded on every flat surface of her office

A dizzying architecture of paperwork, books, and coffee mugs littered the officescape

Organized by randomness and curated by wild pixies

Still, she found the correct form in less than twenty seconds

Crash (an acrostic poem)

Capsizing the tin of screws sent them careening to the tile floor

Running away from the cacophony, Flynn kept his head down

Another hammer flew by, smashing the windows on his left

Splinters of glass impregnated themselves into his flesh

He threw himself through the ex-window before the ground finally found him
