Earbuds in the Rain

Earbuds are my suit of social armor. On the streets. In the tube. In restaurants when dining alone. Most days, I don’t even listen to anything. I merely have the buds hooked in my ears to feign preoccupation. They prove to the world that my life is so much more than the rain-soaked procession of transportation and employment and meals.

To those who see me, the voice in my buds whispers something elemental, something worthy, and the music is the soundtrack to an enviable life.
