my neighbours are boring
keeping curtains drawn all day
wonder what life lies behind the fabric

only one lays bare to me
a lonely fat bald man
sitting at his kitchen table

he eats cereal, soup, or noodles –
always something from a bowl
every day, eating from a bowl

the way lonely fat bald men do
I suppose, still, he remains
my most interesting neighbour
