Banshee Mode

She starts howling
over the slightest thing,
her voice channeling
her inner fire alarm
in an evacuation for one
 
there isnít much I can say
to extinguish the burn
so I stop talking
as she starts screeching
about a lack of communication  
when all I want is a shit in peace
 
maybe thatís why I write,
not to get my point across
but I can say what I like
without a siren going off
on a hazy Monday morning
 
drapes happily closed  
against the flame.
