I absolutely agree with your analysis of this poem. You made a great point when you talked about how instead of using the typical, ordinary bad sounds we might think of (fingernails on a chalkboard is my personal fave), Ondaatje chose to use ones that had, to quote you, "powerful visual elements" that accompanied these awful sounds. The visuals Ondaatje provides are a huge part of this poem, really forcing readers to think as to why the sounds are so bad. So excellent point. But I wouldn't have expected anything less than excellent from you Nora.
