What does she understand about me?
She says I’m all about sports and poetry
there isn’t much else

Unlike my brother who ranges over topics
knows about this and that
about all and anything

I want to answer her with
a No that’s not me
I dive deeply into things

I do sports to find the lives
I do poetry to reach
beyond me

Yet I utter not a word
I leave her
with my silence

And a bit of how another sees me
A start, a strange start
I do want to say No to her

But let it stay – it’s what I present
no matter what I do
or say
