Hearing Him (Day 609)

I like hearing him 
   when he isn’t talking 
when I can hear him 
   thinking 
   of new distractions 
   and glistening 
   attractions
to lure our attention 
   far from the drama 
   we all crave
I like listening 
   to the wheels 
   as they turn, slowly, 
methodically grinding out 
the ineffable nonsense
  of the day.
