simone

you don’t have to be wealthy
beautiful
know every mudra and mantra
nor current event
nor elucidate many
sonnets from Blake and Keats
or even Sartre

you don’t even have to be kind
nor even sane for that matter
all that I desire now
left in this world
is when I speak
is for you to
know me

and if I write a poem
my rawest core
you can feel it
and can touch the depth
of both loss and joy
without filter
and you still know well
how to
cry
