Can’t Talk Right Now - By Frank Blacharczyk

Can’t Talk Right Now

Two people ran into each other
stood side by side known yet unknown
saying hello then sliding into an awkward silence
like an old western gunfight suddenly
a duet of  ring tones that has taken music hostage
they reached for their souls
to see who had the quickest draw
and to their relief a touching moment
quickly typing with insane giggles
their thoughts playing the keys like a piano
in the end they acknowledged each other with a nod
with a good-bye slipped it back into their holsters
patting it like a baby's bottom waiting for the burp
they walked for a moment but like a pack of cigarettes
they reached for their cell phones lighting and inhaling
staring at the screen to see if their popularity was still intact
as they were staring downwards the person they were tweeting
walked by without a peep just a nod.
