My headphones are in because I don’t feel like talking. Sometimes.
Other times, I just really can’t hear you because my music is playing.
Maybe you do the same. You have white wires coming down from your ears, but there’s no music.
Maybe you don’t use headphones.
Maybe you don’t use something that’s electronic or physical.
Maybe we hide behind the twinkle of our eyes and our radiant smiles.
Some of us use nice headphones to cover up, but most of us use our smiles and “fine” words so we don’t have to share.
