He Thought He Could Stop When He Wanted To

RobertPolidori - Deslondes Street, New Orleans (2005)




I do not want any more talking.


Anymore moving about.




And all, absolutely still and absolutely quiet.



Look up here. LOOK up here.
Let me have your undevided attention.

Nobody talk. Nobody move.


Absolutely nobody looking around.
Put your head down. Eyes closed.



Close
your
eyes. Eyes closed.


C'mon, right now, c'mon.

Nobody moving, nobody talking.




Absolutely still.
