My Ears Are Ravenous (series: The Word On Noise, part 10)

An ode to harsh noise music.

by Dave Skipper

 

My ears are ravenous

For vibrations cavernous

And noises fathomless

Intensity anticipated

Breakthrough annunciated

Waveforms emancipated

Mid-range crunch and grit

Crackles and hums all over it

Voluminous timbres all in a fit

Shuddering smothering bass

Feedback tones all over the place

While harsh mangled bursts smash, tangle, and race

 

They teach

Without speech

Of truth beyond reach

Of unity, diversity

Beauty or perversity

Of hope in adversity

Creation, destruction

Infinite reduction

Divine instruction

As sounds take wing

And explosions sing

This noise – for which king?

    I didn’t know that you wrote poetry. A nice touch for your blog.
