Modern Man

He wears his name on his chest
So you won’t forget it —
Or so you can pretend
To know him already.

He is always composing something:
Emails, text messages,
A status update or
Sarcastic comeback —

But he cannot compose the moments of his life
except as some blind necklacer,
sliding unseen gemstones
over thread and needle.
