An irritant

in a brown and barren restaurant!

Irrelevant - a silent picture on TV,

with background latin music playing on and on and endlessly.

Apparently the silent movies are still here,

over there

and undecipherable, pointless music

rattling round my ears.

When sound and sight don’t mix,

it’s an unnatural trick,

like shouting ‘darling’ in a fury

or thoughtless words that freeze my heart all over.
