So oft I’m prodded come “out of your shell”--
that noxious expression which clearly states
introversion must be a form of hell,
a disappointment and second-class trait.
A notion that also fails to proclaim
some animals carry shelter where they
go, and that some humans are just the same.
It does not mean that they have less to say.
Sometimes I will stay in at night, fleeing
aimless chat; I won’t feel distraught.
There is no connection between being
the best talker and having the best thoughts.
We have been given one mouth and two ears
To use proportionally, without fear.
