My Ipod battery went flat in the middle of a song.
In the middle of my journey home on the bus.
But I kept my headphones on,
and moved my head pretending to be listening to my song.
I was listening to House Music on my Ipod.
The loud rhythmic beat of the drum and bass pumping in my ears.
I did a quiet burp.
There was a disturbance behind me.
Everyone was looking.
I looked behind me.
I couldn’t see anything.
Curious, I removed one of my earphones.
The bus although in motion was dead quiet.
They had heard my not-so-quiet burp.
They had been looking at me.
Sometimes I put on my headphones.
Sometimes when I am walking down the street.
Sometimes I’m not even listening to music.
Sometimes I just don’t want to be disturbed.
