White Noise

Eddie thinks about Rita all the time

raising and lowering

the volume

in time with the temperature

It’s no coincidence

Eddie supposes

that Pump it Up plays

on the car radio

on the way to see Rita

Eddie plays loud

and he has to look cool

on stage

Rita gives him some volume

and a couple of highlights

before the gig

Free tickets

up front

mosh pit

admires her work

through the sweat

and the tears

and the sheer volume
