how it was (to, me)

there is no convincing
a lie. what you tell people
i am. i plant roots.

to, me
wish nothing. hypocrisy.
my one awareness.

arriving with un-telling.
sideways glance.
laughing. down.

how i admire
your perfect freedom.
within an agreed refinement.

praise for the dirt
beneath my fingernails.
DNA of clawing

what

did

you

expect
