The Don’t Talk To Me Sign

by allisonkujiraoka

I’m nose-deep in a book

engrossed in this menu

communing with my coffee

Don’t Talk To Me


I’m walking somewhere with purpose

projecting a solo confidence

running off for now

Don’t Talk To Me


I’m averting my eyes for a reason

not looking for anything special 

let you know if I need help

Don’t Talk To Me


I’m lost in concentration

will figure it out on my own

promise there’s nothing to say

Don’t Talk To Me


Body language is my armor

so let my gestures speak

please read and listen carefully

and Don’t Talk To Me.
