Sometimes you exasperate me

With your half responses and ambiguities

Leaving a myriad of inferential


Long silences

Unanswered questions trailing away


And then you reappear




And ultimately contagious


There is no vaccine or antidote

To your exposure

A topical disease

Of some renown

Is the usual outcome


I am not immune
