a poem: more like noise

Poetry is more like noise than anything else.
Some poems lilt.
Some hum.
Some stutter and choke.
Some beat like drums.
Some beat like hearts.
Some are just white noise, and you wouldn’t know it for a poem.
Some are the prettiest sad songs you ever heard all wrapped up in one, and after reading it you can’t quite remember where you are.
Some are like the buzzing of cicadas, ugly but meaningful.
Poetry is more like noise than words.
So let me add mine.
