I Need My Headphones

March 23, 2018

 

I need my headphones
I need my headphones
I am too aware
I am too aware of my surroundings
I am too aware of the world

And its distressing problems
I need my headphones
I am too aware of the old man sliding off his seat in the subway
Is he still alive

His chest isn’t moving
I need my headphones
I am too aware of the side glances with the secretive hand shakes of suited figures

Are they conspiring against me?

Ha! What big brother?
I need my headphones
I am too aware of the uniformed hand reaching for his gun as he sees me walk by

I mean look at me

My skin color and facial features aren’t necessarily “ideal”

But they sure are menacing and a threat to society
I need my headphones
I am too aware of the sound of bullets penetrating the flesh of my brothers and sisters

Now all I have are adopted brothers and sisters
I need my headphones
I am too aware of the streets booting out their own like the British did the Natives

Where can we rest our heads for less than your asking price?

I think I’ll move to the cardboard box down the block
I need my headphones
I am too aware of the FDA approval documents of poisonous food that tricks the buds

Make five meals at McDonalds worth less than a small plate of salad

How much was that hospital bill again?
Damn
Where are my headphones
I am too aware of the President of the United States playing basketball with paper towels with people that did not consent to the game

I mean none of us consented
I need my headphones
I am too aware of skinny babies with bloated bellies framed on gallery walls

Artists making millions for capturing sadness with the clinks of wine glasses and laughter
Wow, photographing it in black and white makes it even more powerful

What a genius

I need my headphones
I am too aware of diseases wiping out so many people that their race is almost extinct

Or a nation or half of the world?
I need my headphones
I am too aware of wars and rumors of wars

Which one is it

Look at your black rectangular screens and play the news

You’ll see the signs

It’s no rumor
I need my headphones
I am too aware of the drastic change in the climate
Momma earth is dying!

Air particles all around us are thickening

Can you even breathe?

Can’t you feel it?!

Can’t you see it?!
I need my headphones!
I am too aware of the coming of chip implantations for survival in the world

Forget your credit card, they’ll want your chip implanted wrist
God forbid, you’re carrying cash
I need my headphones
I am too aware of social injustice
Of stereotypes
Of micro aggression
Of a great divide

Of the dying

Of those living

Of the rich

Of the poor
Of global destruction
Of forced happiness
Of the fortunate
Of a new world order
Of its agenda
Of its agenda
Of its agenda
...
It's all making me anxious
I need my headphones
To ignore my surroundings

For ignorance is bliss

End my suffering with no more knowledge
And be just like the rest
And never rest in peace

....

For now
