A Poem

Two Phones

There is a joke I like to tell

It gets less funny with time

and age

and audience

but I still like to tell it.

***

There are only two kinds of people who carry two phones:

drug dealers

and whores.

***

So if you find yourself

with two phones

ask yourself

critically

honestly

"What am I selling?"

***

As I sit and enjoy the hotel breakfast

that I'm sure is only worth 20 Euro

if you take full advantage of the buffet

I note the amount of people in the room

with two phones

and wonder

"What are they selling?"

***

And then I take a second

to consciously feel

the lone, single device

sitting in my pocket

still

no rings

no vibrations

and ask myself...

"...shit. What am I?"
