So many brilliant friends (1,306)
all shouting at the same time,

some confessing, others arguing
or bragging or retelling jokes,

until I think I should, maybe,
just give up trying to be heard

above the rumble-bumble and
go back to what I once knew best,

a quiet that was old and steady
and tightly woven like a poem.

Howie Good is the author most recently of Stick Figure Opera: 99 100-word Prose Poems from Cajun Mutt Press.
