Staying


I will stay me, thanks.

I like these messy moments
these mismatched socks
these wooly coat covered treks
into cold and rainy bus trails.

I like these cash conversations
that wonder at their phrasing
and flick over intimate
to linger slightly on whimsy.

I like these K dramas
laughing or hooting
as the night gets deeper issues
swept slightly forward.

I will stay me, thanks.

I like these musical numbers
legs trotting the rhythm
keeping step with my drummer
who erratically embraces his dysfunction.

I like these sugar highs, and worried woes
these fingers, feet, and toes
pointed toward the head of the bed
dialing up a memorized number.

I like these engrossed reads
that falter my hearts amusement
and directs my tearful eye toward
sentimental understanding.

I will stay me, thanks.

  1. Ah yes, I share your sentiments. Regardless of my many idiosyncrasies I am content to be just me, and I intend to stay me, thanks 🙂

    A fun and uplifting read. I enjoyed the stark humanity present in every line
