Do Not Disturb


I took the sign
from the hotel door,
knowing it wasn't 
needed there.
I thought it might 
be useful again, 
if ever I went
somewhere.

I hung it
in the room
where we once slept,
to remind me
of what we had shared.

Now I find it
on my phone,
knowing it's 
not really fair
to turn the world off,
as if I didn't care,
to hide behind 
my little screen,
pretending I'm 
not really there.
