On a Busy Day, A Poetic Offering

ain’t something
to pretend to be
unless you are.

and I am.

It ain’t no
Fashion Statement
if in fact,
the afflicted aren’t
Enthralled with its novelty

and I for one
am no fan of identities
with price tags
and sell by dates

If you really are
you might start out
wishing that part of you

had a shelf life
shorter than milk

to be poured away
when it
became too hazardous

to consume.
