2002 Poetry

does my presence displeases you?

your eyes study me from head to toe

do you see Cleopatra in me?

disgruntled to see me poise and self-assured

livid stares that only God and I can identify

baneful motives that are waiting on the shore

are you waiting for me to look down on myself?

you can swear all you want

but your derisions can never disrupt me

between you and me, someone will be

at the deck of discomfiture

rest assured, that won't be me
