The Miser

They mumble, so you strain to decipher the sounds
unaware that these walls could never reveal anything
you don't already know.

You listen to him instead, and then ignore everything
because you prefer not to know.

Is it a joke?

There is no need to overcompensate, although you do,
unsure of the reason, donning the transparent veil of your smile.

You are a seller that became a buyer, although
his price was too high – a luxury you could never really afford.

You'll exhaust your credit
and end up with nothing, again.
