to a thought that dropped by, uninvited:

you offered a pronouncement, bluntly
i offered a response, politely and untruthfully

but here is a truth,
because i should say it:

i think, in this moment,
about how accidental you are

how incidental,
in your own inconsequential way

how small you are, and
how i trifle with your nothingness, and

how you keep returning
for more… and more… and more
