CHANT OF THE CICADAS

Folder: 
POESIE HERESY

 

All the hype;

TV news; avant cuisine

overlooking the issues.

 

Yet I never heard

cicadas sing

til a grass field

in Tennessee

 

when fireworks 

voiced Independence Day

steady flow 

of input & data

permeated the air.

 

The chant

suddenly sounded

like an alarm

if only for a few hours.
