I have white noise in my head.
It layers itself over everything my brain is trying to do
and the only way I can turn the screen
to a semi-smooth grey
is impair my senses
so my receptors can focus on one at a time.
I don’t want to be trying to read while having an audiobook playing
and a graphic novel flicking pages all at once.
I want what I see, hear, smell, taste and touch
to be a well-organised orchestra performing a waltz,
not one who’ve had their instruments switched with scrapyard junk
trying desperately to tune up what can’t be tuned.
