Knocking

Will you open the door
when the knocking
disturbs
your routine?
I'm not selling
religion,
politics
or encyclopedias.

You think I am the outcast,
the hungry, the thirsty,
the one without shelter.
So you sit back in your chair,
bring your book
of romance into view
and live a fantasy.

I will not cease to knock,
an annoyance in your life,
hoping soon
you will realize
I have so much more
to offer
than what you choose to receive.
