Short Note To The Generic “You” That I Sometimes Address As A Writer. Concise, To The Point, I Simply Must Nip This In The Bud Right Now.


Here is a piece of me.
You are not me.
Don’t come any closer.

Take this piece of me,
but don’t try to be me.
Go now while it’s still dark.

I’ll visualize your safe passage
and touch wood out of habit.
The rest is up to you.
