Among Friends
by Angela Hamon

    He hears voices
    Silence like a freight train
    Vast WalMart fright terrain
    At home eating cup o'noodles
    Not yet puffed up
    Bad vibes all around the place
    Just him and his machines
    They talk to him
    Never ask him to explain
    It's summer but it's cold.
