       Okay, now I'm just being silly. Except I'm not. I wrote "Kiss" without thinking of the band at all. Then with "Slipknot", I noticed but still not about Kiss until someone pointed it out. These are not bands I listen to. Anyway, I just figured I'd keep with the "theme" a bit. "Rock" band names are fun for inspiration.

    Quiet Riot

    I hear the silence
    it plays like lips brushing
    against helix

    the sun dazzles the
    spots of green still holding
    and the wood-brown and the
    carolina blue


    if you listen you can hear it

    it rises up
    thumping at the chest
    like mad bears
    like angry children
    like a heartbeat
    falling from a cliff

      Jane, for being silly, you put some nice lines together. I didn't know at first that it is about bands because I read the description after. I'm so dated on music that I don't know the names. I took the first lines to be about lips brushing on the helix of the ear, which I found not only a nice feeling but also fitting with the hearing theme. Then I found myself in a forest getting quiet as forest sounds rise. The quiet riot? I like the imagery I got without knowing its about bands. Works for me. - Jim

      Yes, you are being a little silly, but that is the nature of creativity, it's where you find it. You could at least use the bands you do listen to. I could consider ripping off song titles to do something with, there are so many good ones.

      especially like the last stanza....really nice images in this poem...could apply to several emotions as well as just painting a scene....and soon, i am on my way to carolina blue...leaving today or tomorrow.

    i like the repetition of "like"

    creates a beat poem's rhythm so nicely.
