Communication is Important

Floated in the void
between the stars
is a dark matter

a dark matter
where cell phone
messages go

where messages go
that have been received
but never listened to

never listened to
never really communicated
and communication is important

I mean, really important
That’s what I’ve been informed.
It’s like the Laws of the Universe

And like the Laws of the Universe
it is irrevocable. So
I keep it with me always

I keep it with me
and I don’t shut it off.
I listen to all of my messages.

I listen to them
even if they disturb my neighbors
even if the music of their call is a bother

So when the music sounds
I listen to my messages
I keep them out of the dark matter
