I’m the girl whose acoustic playlist
consists of others’ ‘get-up-and-go’ music.
But lately I’ve been craving,
peace,  stillness, silence.

Crowded city streets,
bumper-to-bumper traffic
flowing at all hours.
The non-stop jabber of interns
gathered right outside of my office.
Two reports in two days
of gunmen rampaging in public.

Home is quiet, calm.
I turn off my computer,
silence my phone,
don’t even bother with the television.
I lay & read on my couch
until I fall into a restless sleep.
