Find a lullaby 

tucked in the rustling

of your jacket

and jangle of change.

I have to sing myself

a song for crowds

these days.

I pep talk myself

into going 

into public.

The energy

snap pops off people

until it draws

away my serenity.

I hum to myself

in corners of the room

and I watch

the people minutes

zoom in and out 

of my view.
