AUTHOR

To say that their likes and dislikes affect me

will be lying, as I cannot fathom whose eyes

are outside this tiny aquarium watching me

silently digesting punctuations, the lonesome

chameleon morphing colours, responding to

the changing humidity and temperature of

others desiring comfort and escape. I sit still

under the lamp, eyeballs protruding, twirling

in search of flying, crawling, slithering words

to fulfil this insatiable page, procrastinating

for my own pleasure, hardly experimenting

secret tricks for their sympathy or empathy,

as I am cold-blooded, unable, unwilling to

detect those sentimental sentinels expecting

something special sent by someone special,

not knowing one day among the cold stars

under their own skies there will be auroras.
