Noise

 

“Are you coming this Saturday? It’s gonna be at the pool.”

 

“Can you send me the latest materials for the meeting this afternoon? Thanks”

 

“Oh my god! Look at the puppy!”

 

“50% off sale ends TODAY!!”

 

Lower back is killing me. I can’t believe I injured it again. Should’ve taken that deload week…

 

“Next in line! Sir, I can help you here.”

 

“No, sorry. No refunds. You can only exchange. That’s the policy. It wasn’t clear? Sir, it was clear in the fine print.”

 

“Yeah I heard he’s a dick. Cheated on her over and over, and then in the end just up and left.”

 

“Hi I’m a 2nd year law student, but interested in consulting. Can I ask you a few questions over a coffee chat?”

 

"For all the times you rained on my parade~"

“No, unfortunately we don’t do egg whites only.”

 

“North Korea’s recent temper tantrum over US-South Korean military exercises and its threat to pull out of its upcoming summit with…”

 

“You should come to China. Dad and I can get you a place. Canada’s too dangerous anyway.”

“WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT?? YOU MOTHERFUCKER WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU LOOKING AT?!?!! YOU’VE NEVER SEEN A HOMELESS PERSON BEFORE?!”
 

“LAST CHANCE 75% CLEARANCE SALE ENDS TONIGHT!!!!”

 

“BROOOOOOOOO I WENT TO COMMERCE TOO!!! HOW HAVE WE NEVER MET!!!!!!”

 

 

Wait, stop.

 

 

Stop. Close your eyes.

 

 

Slow down.

 

 

Bring it down. Way down.

 

 

Are you in there?

 

Let it go. All of it.

 

 

None of it matters. None of it.

 

 

Breathe in. Breathe out. Do it 5 more times.

 

 

It’s just a show. You’re just watching a show. Have you forgotten?

 

 

Remember when you had a dream.

 

 

Remember when you had a heart.

 

 

And never, ever forget who you are deep down inside.

 

 

Okay, open your eyes again. You're ready.
