Breakfast (day 143)

I think

if I gave you the book of me

you would treat me differently

you wouldn’t do a lot of the things you do now

like talk at me over breakfast

about the girl I should ask about but don’t want to know


Shut the doors as an afterthought

without even thinking

how dark you’ll make this room,

I don’t have night vision yet


Give me the world in the palm of your hand

but you give everyone the world,

you can make so many worlds fit in a smile or a teardrop

This is your universe after all

I realize over breakfast

isn’t that just the hardest pain to grasp?
