THE SILENT PEOPLE

Some people are so rude,
Living their lives with no concern for others,
Or possibly just intent on pissing other people off-
Annoying everyone around them.

The silent people-
Want to kill them-
And drive forks into their skulls-
Create weapons of extreme torture-
And scream from the top of their lungs-
“SHUT UP.”

But words are not spoken-
And attention is not given.
Though annoyance is apparent,
The annoying keep on living.

WILL YOU BE BRINGING A DATE?”
“PROBABLY NOT.”
“OH COME ON,” Dora said. “I’M SURE THAT YOU MUST HAVE LOTS OF BOYFRIENDS– AND GIRLFRIENDS…”
I nod my head no and explain that my sex life is complicated.
“HOW SO?” Tommy asked.
“MY BOYFRIEND’S STRAIGHT.”
“OH. WOW,” Dora said. “MINE TOO.”
We laugh.
