audience of one

“But who are you mumbling to, my dear?” a voice suddenly asked, cutting through her words.
Turning around, Alice found the Cheshire Cat grinning at her.
“No, no, no, no-one”, she stammered.
“Oh,” said the Cat, grinning even broader.
– Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland

if i don’t write

i don’t need to worry about who i’m writing for
and what they might think of me
or my writing

or my haircut

PS the above quote doesn’t really come from Alice in Wonderland. I made it up. It just seemed like an appropriate interaction between Alice and the Cat.
