That Episodes of RHOBH When Garcelle Shades Paris Hilton For Always Being On The Phone

confirms my fears of what my elderly 

neighbors think of me, typing between our 

mutual trees.  Brown eyes, occasionally 

arising from iPhone screens for wildflowers 

reconvene with gorilla glass to cast 

small spells in syllables though they can’t tell 

I’m creating and I never tell those passed 

on rocky paths in “real life.”  This pastel 

phone is my artistic life where I can 

rant like a four hundred year old playwright.

Hold a writing studio inside my hand. 

Is Paris writing sonnets? Possible she might 

be (or NFTs) as likely as a text. 

There’s more to both of us than housewives suspect.
