quietude

solitary nourishment

Quietude! Please! Quietude!

Shush!

I’ve spent

My strength

An entire morning

Chitter-chatter

Neurotypical natter

Animated entertainment

Thrown in

For good measure

Smiled politely

At all and sundry

Who passed us by

Caught inside

Your friendly

Yakkity yakkity

Waiting patiently

Determinedly quelling

Silent screams

Then Delicious Luncheon

Plated and served

To canine and human

Oh, Yes, I cook too!

Now, please…

Let me repair

Breathe deep

Fresh air

Unpolluted

By social stirring

Incessant blabber

Mindless slobber

Allow me

Hard-earned pleasure

Settling molecules

Peacefully singing

Wordless tunes

Soothing

Pounding headache

Stinging eyes

Olfactory senses

Slowly freeing

From soggy tentacles

Of human odour

Just me

And the elements

Inside

Temporary space

Self-made

Clemency

Quietude…

Please!
