Ten Words

For my anniversary
on To Be Real,
I give poems.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

There is ground
and a sky. Why
must I choose?

~~~~~~~~~~~~


I don't know
your name or gender,
but I judge.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was thinking about
how well you know
my name.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blow out those candles good,
she said.
I don't understand.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

And I
sit here
completely
in awe
of the day.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Disappointment;
Embarrassment;
Complaining; Conflicted;
Jealousy;
words I use too often.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

It's okay
if you stay
the way
you've always been.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

I do not expect
anything else
or less
from you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ten poems of ten words
to celebrate 200
blog posts.
