No One Noticed The Noise

By Lynn White

PROMPT—No one noticed ...

She lay there still

quiet in her flesh,

and her covering of skin

though her heart was drumming


and in her head she was screaming


and louder still.

But still

her flesh

and skin

were quiet.

Those parts that can be seen

were quiet.

So no one noticed the noise.
