DBM!

Don’t Bother Me here,
writhing on a patch of silly tales, weaving.
When yet another stray thought impales,
infusing fresh ‘blood’, forming vapor trails,
it wails – my sanity leaving!

Back when cell phones were still kind of new
and wicked expensive,
Davey conjured an original bumper sticker as follows:

DON’T BOTHER ME – I’M ON THE PHONE!

And a few years before that,
a door-to-door salesman tried to convince me
and a slightly less skeptical housemate
that plunking down $1600.00 for that snazzy satchel-style cellular phone he was selling
would be good for our business.

Davey H wouldn’t be bothered.
