Waiting...

Peace

Open laptop
earbuds nestled, playing music.

Doors burst

A crowd of people
Stream from the enclosed and tight spaces
of class

Conversations
"how'd you do..."
"...didn't look nervous at all..."
"...thanks, I got it at..."
"...I can't wait for summer..."
"...eat lunch..."

A cacophony of disturbance

My music is gone
drowned in the turbulence of noise

With a few deft strokes
of my thumb
I slide the volume adjuster

Now the conversations are a murmur

And my Where The Wild Things Are Soundtrack
Is happily consuming my thoughts once again.
