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.
