I taught nothing 

nobody listened


I eavesdropped 

on conversations



tried to imagine


morning came 

sometimes I relented


but I was there 

head full of danger  


heart full 

of mother


even when 

I could’ve killed 

the people 


I was working for

I still wore 


the button- 

down shirt

You have quite a talent for being plainspoken without being boring or mundane--a skill I've tried to master with little success.
