Poem - and i never knew / anything about you

another poem
for you to read

the one who has nothing
or knows poetry

tonight you sit there
staying in or thinking
to go out

window shade drawn
television on

in a room i never
was allowed to see

someone on the phone
for several hours

other people calling
who never get through

it is a small kingdom
and you are absolute ruler

staying in or thinking
to go out

10 x 13 or 15 x 12
i'll never know

though mom comes in
with questions

and your father
slams the doors

and i never knew you
anything about you

it is obvious now
