Noisy Neighbor

_____________________________________

Blender buzzes through open door

Flower fragrance fills the hallway

Private phone calls you can’t ignore

Can hear every word she does say

Others’ space she seems to ignore

Wish I cared less what people say

*

Private phone calls you can’t ignore

Can hear every word she does say

Silently, please stop I implore

Can’t wait for the end of the day

Others’ space she seems to ignore

Wish I cared less what people say

*

Silently please stop I implore

Can’t wait for the end of the day

I really can’t take any more

I wonder how late she will stay

Others’ space she seems to ignore

Wish I cared less what people say

*

I really can’t take anymore

I wonder how late she will stay

Not sure we’ll develop rapport

I close my door with no delay

Others’ space she seems to ignore

Wish I cared less what people say
