I would highly recommend learning the art

of invisibility at a young age.

It’s useful to sit still

breathing but not moving your ribs.

Taking notes..

It’s in the details one

learns the ropes and

listening to neighbors in hotel

rooms is lesson number four.

To cries, whispers, the click

of locks,

learning what stops listening

like ear plugs or music or white

noise. Stop.

Other people will always disappoint


Stop taking notes

on life.

    Wow, Lucinda. I don’t think we ever stop taking notes on life, but the notion is tempting sometimes. A beautiful sad poem
