Monologues,

Sometimes loud,

The sound of her booming voice

Reverberating

Across the room

In my mind

Sometimes inaudible,

Words muttered under her breath

Spoken barely above a whisper.

Monologues,

Commencing without any provocation

Heedlessly heading in any direction

Regardless of time and place

Often accompanied by mirthless laughter

Or a look of contrived grimace.

These monologues

Always catch me off guard

Albeit, my ears are accustomed

It is indeed hard

To be an unwearied, silent spectator

While the same sentences

Are repeated

Like a tape stuck on replay
