A noisy restaurant
Listen
Focus
Beyond the dishes
The music
The voice that rises
Above it all
For there’s always one
Grating and obnoxious
Opinionated and rude
Complaining
Telling a story
Or gallant
Charismatic
Dynamic
Pleasing to the ear
A domineering man
A woman
Begging for attention
Different characters
Different reasons
Yet their voice
Rises above it all

(2014)
