A language unknown

But all sounds familiar

A comfort in not understanding

The small talk around me

Gives way for white noise

For my thoughts to find poise

I read each expression

Hand gesture and smirk

Relationships revealed

Without that much work

I’ll learn it eventually

But for now I’ll just savour

Not knowing the content

But getting a flavour
