my eyelids

slamming shut
never stopped me
from writing a poem
fact is
maybe it could help
someone said my driving
might improve also
haven’t tried it
traffic is a lot noisier
when your eyes are closed
just heard a dog yelp out the back window
not my dog
his paws are scratching the floor
behind me
this might be good therapy
for politicians & generals
close your eyes
shut the fuck up
& listen
