Loud – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“There is no nobility with bad manners.” Ali ibn Abi Talib


He spoke loudly
like a thunderstorm,
he always spoke loudly,
everything about him shouted,
he consumed his habitation
with absolute, unbridled gusto,
the way he dressed and moved,
the way he chewed and talked
simultaneously revolting the room,
oblivious to the polite, unaware of
eyebrows raised in his dubious honour,
he ploughed on untouched, his
hunger growing louder.
