Text messages find 
my phone at all hours 
from points everywhere 
people I don't know
seeking things
I do not have
answers to questions
I do not know
worded to catch me
out as if I could
reveal something new 
instead of the same
question we are all
given at birth
work to answer
every night and day
until we breathe our last
breath the question
still upon our lips
