Can you be quiet? World
(I beg you...)
when I'm writing a poem
(or reading, or thinking...)
can you just hold a minute
before knocking at my door?
Because I am waiting for
a beautiful voice from Heaven
to drop into my earthly bowl

but, Shh... (I promise)
once I capture her
I will turn back to you
and serve your needs
As I always do
