When you pull back the layers.

When your feet inch away from the bright light hurting your eyes

The rhetorics hurting your mind

The squares with curved edges on tables and in your hand

From your lover’s eyes or lies

From the addictions with or without form

From coverings expensive or worn

From the person you’re expected to be

From the person you expect you to be

The images you created

The pain you embody

The joys you inhabit momentarily

Who are you.
