On some days, the world around me is filled with sound –
obnoxious sounds of barking dogs and strangers.
They are minutia compared to the clamor of my thoughts.
only the breezy hum of my laptop rings into the air
while I beat out words onto this keyboard to keep it company
and forget the day.
There are days when I have to shove plugs into my ears
to drown it all out
and there are times when I wish I could wash out anything in life
in the same manner.
Family, and friends;
there is no off-switch for those.
A laptop is so much simpler,
and sometimes it keeps better company than all of them.
