Regular Poem: I’m nobody’s 

3 Feb

i’m nobody
number one
no one
first person
emergency contact
insurance beneficiary
no one
contractually obligated
to love and care for
till death
divorce court

but there’s
to be said
for being thought of
at all
to be
secondary or tertiary
or even outside
the top ten
being thought of
when the moon is right
and a reflection of a wayward star
on a car hood
reminding someone
of your smile
or penchant for
something unique to

there’s something
to be said
for being
the person people
will listen
to weird stories
and get as excited
as you’d want someone to be
hearing them
the person people
favors of
the person people
jokes and secrets and confessions
the person people
thoughtful and specific gifts
the person people
things from they’d forgotten they’d asked for
the person people

the people person
not one person’s person
but a lot of persons’ person
