An Alone Mood

Incessant chatter.  Endless questions.  

When I was a kid, there was a song on one side of a 45 record I used to play over and over.  Entitled "Yakkity, Yak, Blah, Blah, Blah," this little ditty was about a man who comes home from work feeling tired and his wife just peppers him with questions and demands.  Makes me chuckle today because even though I tried never to do that to my husband when I was still married, I realized that I share the same sentiments as the singer on the record because I feel constantly barraged with questions, complaints, demands, from people at work and the three teenagers in my home! 

I seek solitude.  Some every day.  This piece I wrote on a day when I was counting down the time until I could get away from everyone who was driving me crazy.

Caught in a game of poker,
I only want Solitare.
Six pack, but only need a sip.
Seven seats seems silly.
Eight lunch today. 
“Want some company?”
Just mine.
