Take Your Earbuds Out

by Alanna


Take Your Earbuds Out

I am talking to you

Let me see your eyes

I am a human

Trying to connect with you

Another human


Look up from your








Turn it over

Turn it off

Think, ponder

Be something more than an open receptacle

For mind-numbing content

That someone else pours into your brain

now trained to sit, stay, obey


Take your earbuds out

Look up, listen to the wind

And marvel at the wild geese in formation

Flying overhead
