Dress The Noise

It is noisy over here.
Voices in-the-round
     consuming my patience;
Demanding attention like the car seatbelt
     beep-beep-beeping at me.
I want to clean up the noise --
scrub it hard until the dirt gives way.

Adding noise upon noise yields little.
But finding the space between
     and around the noise --
it could be called harmony.

Make the noise yours by dressing it --
like a salad.  Dress the noise in context.
Give it relationship,
     and watch it disturb someone else.
