a spider wrapping its prey

Questionable Quarry

People who don't know you
are eager to explain your existence
from ear-bending gossip
or presumptions constructed 
on car, clothes, caterwauling
they divvy their data
like chocolate chip cookies
on a church plate, dispensing sugar
candy inaccuracies, calling it enterprise,
a used car salesman intoning one-upping
or an ambulance chaser supping
from the eternal coffers
near which they bow their heads
and prey.
