I open my eyes to see

I feel like 
I am all alone in this world 
with eyes
watching my every move

you might think that 
I was paranoid 
but every time I open my eyes
to see 
someone is responding to me 
answering a question I have
but never asked

I turned up the sound 
on my radio and TV
so that no one can hear me pee 
at home
I communicate with others 
on recyclable newsprint 
which I keep to burn 
at home
I burn all 
my garbage and place the ashes and bones 
in public waste receptacles 
around town

I wear recyclable rubber gloves and leave no prints
I wear recyclable rubber condoms and leave no sperm
I wear a mask and recyclable rubber booties when I am awake

you might think that 
I was paranoid 
but every time I open my eyes
to see 
I seem to 
find me
