Happy National Poetry Month!

Here is a fun poem from my book!

Hum

Hum

along, coworker

to the music on my pc

Off-key

your mindless drone

a fly

buzzing in my ear

but just discretely

barely above

the volume

whether it

be high or low

as if

i wouldn’t know

it’s you

i have tried

adjusting

yet your little moans

rise and fall

with it

your voice box

i fear

has a mind

of its own

and i try

to pretend

hushlittlebaby

ancientwoman

grandmothercroon

but

no, the drone

distinguishes not

from classical

to heavy metal

or techno

i’m too nice

to let you know

there’s an army

at my ear

fighting off

each

MmmmHhhh

and

HhhhMmmm
