Senior Aimee Bozoudes listens to music. Her music is a vice to block out the noise of the world around her.

What sounds the night makes now

A howl no more than a bark

The screech of tires and roar of monstrous engines

Never imagined before

 

I lay my head upon my pillow ignorant to these new night sounds

White headphones block them from my ears

The times of earth being heard, wondered, feared

Have long been forgotten

 

The hum of music, videos, games

Is the night and day

The hour, the second

Sounds of the world are drowned in this electric hum

To deaf ears the world makes no sound
