to the assassin who refuses to verify herself

January 9, 2018

 

Inspired by a day job experience.

 

Once a month, I dread your razor
in my receiver.

 

I don’t need to know your name.
You announce it.

 

You assume I’m Filipino or Indian,
a brown bandit

 

Come to steal society, security, your
sanctity of medicine.

 

I can’t connect you unless I know you
but you’re undone,

 

A child’s exercise book, incomplete,
Veruca Salt appalled

 

Some answering service peon should
grovel for your name.

 

I don’t grovel.  I tense my tongue and
tend the gates.

 

You quit playing Mexican standoff.
Suburban elitist,

 

You wish to end me with a red X,
and disconnect.
