ring tones & motorbikes chatter like angry macaques.  
cars purr like horny lions in the formation of offensive elephants.
buses blare like confident ostriches 
in devastating clans of particles. 
clockwork objects sound 
the sounds of wildernesses aggregating. 

there are inversions in the world
: vastly populated worlds beneath the "world." 
it will take evolutionary events 
as old as rock to turn them otherwise. 

within a future object 
we'll find impressed upon its genes   a note
that will sine-wave a frequency. 
or something scribbled—perhaps a saturated gesture-tone.
the animate manner of other objects 
as tiny-as-can-be
stretched out from the nomad's land of time 
in multiple directions. 

there something without a clue to "here"
will find the embedded repercussion & interpret it. 
what language will it speak?

the object makes an unfamiliar noise. 
it will be the shape of something sonically coded. 
it will be the impress of a long long time ago.

  1. I’ve never really liked similes in poems, but your three initial lines conjure up something of approximation. And the images they approximate border on the ludicrous, as if you’re obsessing with something, AND THAT WORKS!

    1. Why the hell the system is showing me as ‘Anonymous’ when I’m logged in as myself, I have no idea. This is Marie Marshall here!

    2. I love that you always get my points. I am obsessing over the object-hood of all things, and their agency to affect. I wanted to capture how inorganic objects become a wilderness through their agency of sounds, which are remarkably similar to organic sounds, or even just a replacement. The similes sort of cheapen both, because objects are cheap: they are everywhere, we are saturated in them.

      Hope you’re well Marie.
