pillows plush and thump
the empty can makes an empty clang
roller blades on gravel grind
and steps do little better.
but what i really hate
what I really really hate, is that
spine ripping sound
of styrofoam.
squeaking about stuffy boxes, and attics
and trucks and hands,
shrieking its cacophonous curse.
Imitating a fat, dry snow
but never coming close.
Styrofoam, I despise thee.
