"I exist as I am, that is enough." -Whitman

I make voices from
the white noise,
let them entertain me.

They are small and
cunning and say great
large things into my
ears. Slumped in the
grasp of industrial
chairs, I am hugged by
itching polyester.

I make these sounds
speak, so I don't have to.
They have taken my words,
I give them away
and sit with chapped lips
in the air conditioning.

Sound Screens I have parted,
twisted into human form.

Honestly, I have no idea what a white noise machine is, but I like the concept of taking noise and making it voices, so I really like this poem :) It's short and sweet, not overbearingly detailed.
