I Hear From No One

I hear from no one much
Or at least very seldom.
Some send me their junk mail,
Though it’s not clear if they don’t know the difference
Or if it’s only that they think I won’t know it…

I’ll read the first few words of anything,
Though that don’t mean it doesn’t make me mad.
There’s no longer any purpose in getting mad, though,
Just as there is none in practicing indifference to one and all.

I prowl the broken teeth and bones
Of my array in the mirror
And wish for more input in the soup,
Though I’m expecting less.
