Turn Down The Noise

you man wearing jeans, tennis shoes and light blue hoodie, pulled up over his head, is squatting on a long, empty train or subway stop. His head is bent down so you cannot see his face. His hands cover his ears. No one else is in sight.

think noises only
me ~ but now?
I hear voices in my head.
Make it stop ~ but how?
