Socrates

I will never know the man
who scavenges from
the trash
outside my apartment
every Monday before dawn.

I will never know the man
who squatted in
the gutter
on a street in El Centro
shaving in the trickling springwater.

I will never know the man
who asked me about
the feather
on my backpack’s dreamcatcher
which was gone when I unlocked my gate.

I will never know the man
who writes about
all three;
he is too close to notice,
he is too far from home.
