I hate google
trying to match me up,
improve my social standing, or life.
Accept the chat? Who the hell
is Robert Shelton?
The one of Ku Klux Klan born, Tuscaloosa, 1929?
or the Critic, Chicago, 1926, discoverer of Bob Dylan?
No – wait – he died… and so did the other…
Could it be Robert Shelton Associate Professor, Peace and Conflict Studies?
Or Robert Shelton former president, University of Arizona,
expert in condensed matter physics, now director
of the Fiesta Bowl?
He is at least living, and had a starting salary of $550,000
back in 2008, but, really now, what would we have to chat about?
And of all the images there is not one robert shelton
I recognize, no former Rio High School Viking,
or Oak Ridge alumni, just random variations:
robert shelton ownenergy, robert shelton newton,
robert shelton farmers insurance, robert shelton golf,
robert shelton photography, robert shelton pwc…
But look — on Results page 2 there is a dramatic turn — Fiesta Bowl
robert shelton abruptly resigned — he’s going back
“to the real love of my life”
“back to something I also feel passionate about”
Research Corporation for Science Advancement,
and for that step up from the Fiesta Bowl, I commend Robert Shelton,
but I still don’t want to chat with him, or any other
by that name, except — what’s this on page 3? Robert Shelton Tug,
MMSI 367057370, Callsign WD6515… yes, I would talk to a boat
named Robert Shelton — why not? We could discuss our various understandings
of Ocean as Metaphor for God and Self – hey Bob the Tug – if it was you,
chat me back — this time I just might accept.
