A Poem by Cherise Wyneken

Noise Pollution

A gaggle of geese
waddle toward the pond
shattering the day
with clatter.
One lags behind
pecking at crumbs
beneath the picnic table.

The Goodyear Blimp
hovers overhead
droning home
from a Dolphins' game.
Tires squeal, sirens blare.

I long to lag behind
peck at crumbs.
