The Gossip Extinguisher



Safely tucked in my pocket

Warm and safe from sight

Lies the device.

I haven’t used it for a while now,

Even though the unit keeps shocking my heart

As if some action should take place.

But I would rather just listen.

So gradually the emails start rolling in

Text messages,

Even voice mails, if anyone knows what they are any more.

Filling the device to overflow.

Soon I won’t be able to hear any more gossip at all,

Unless I do something.

Perhaps I should turn it off,

Or even destroy it,

Tuning out the channel.
