John Doe

by Chris Butler

Don’t you know John Doe?
He’s the best friend
I’ve ever had.

Have you ever met his wife Jane?
She’s just the same.

Both have no face,
no pictures,
no government issued identification or social security cards,
no birth or death certificate (yet),
no fingerprints,
no recordable molars,
no tattoos,
no scars,
no birthmarks,
no possessions,
no family,
no children,
no friends,

but they have me
and I know them.
