From Me to You

From Me to You

 

It’s true that the real world gets so much of you.
Much more, in fact,
than I ever do.
But my part is secret and sweet and taboo—
my part is only you all the way through—
shedding the outside and coming undone in cool darkened rooms
far from view.
And that’s true, too–more true than the real world can
ever undo.
