The Irrelevant Man

the irrelevant in the room,
of large house party
restless to have a voice
but the voice has no wit
'but neither do they'
words muffled, twisted trunk
but they're normal see,
so the irrelevant slips out of sight
and then returns a circus animal
standing on hind feet walking like rest
telling jokes, smiling like rest
but then he stops and

stood on pause
sees fine margins
laughing at, not with
sideshow, not cast member

the irrelevant, not remembered
now all out in the jungle
surrounded by bars
surrounded by poachers
but everyones left
forgotten him, like pet
bought at christmas on whim
forever irrelevant
so so irrelevant
