all in a day’s work

there’s jessica,

the innocent.

melissa,

the saint.

phil the artist,

aaron the

smart one.

kim,

a foundation.

before jimmy,

i cried.

they know

me naked,

my contagious

germs.

they know,

half of me.

we walk

together,

in white

walls.

the chatter

entertains

our fire drill.

our prayers,

are different.

and we laugh,

at our

angry desires.

our secrets,

are good.

though

i haven’t

learned,

their middle

names.

tomorrow,

i’ll dance.

they are

a video

i will not

sing,

a comrade

song.

cause i

know,

only half

of them.

jessica,

melissa,

phil,

aaron,

kim,

and jimmy.
