Sensory Overload

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It won’t stop

whirring

A

Screw of

infinite length unfurling along the thread

fashioned by the folds

of my eardrums

I vow to

floss

Regularly

Prompt from  plinky.com, a site which is in archive mode but still delivers the goods- like this one that I based this poem on: “Write about a noise — or even a silence — that won’t go away. (We’ll let you interpret this in different ways…)”. It had all the hallmarks of a great prompt- getting me writing right away, finished and posted (including perusing morgue files for a pic) in under 15 min!
