I see you out there
staring at my window, 
sweating bullets,
wanting to peek at 
what's in here
like I might raise my shade 
and share
something personal, 
some "tableau vivant",
some scrap of life 
starring yours truly.
Fat chance. 
Because this curtain never rises
and I keep the lights low,
especially at night.
So enjoy the blank screen.
You always project yourself anyway.
