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.
