Phone

Plug it in and turn the ringer off
Because I don’t want to hear that fucking buzzing sound
Or even see the little flashing bulb
Someone wants something, probably,
Or an event has just been updated.
I can’t turn it off because it wakes me,
Whether I like it or not,
Each morning
Or my mom might call, permitted to bypass the silence — just in case.
At least barring emergency, I can sleep
Hopefully soundly
Before the sound marked Default brings me back around
To rise and repeat.
