I Don’t Write Poems for the People I Love

I don’t write poems for the people I love.

I chose you because
if I don’t, who else will?

I’ve been kind. I’ve given you skin.
And when you fall and fail
and give in –


I’ve gifted you a space to become
the man they’ll talk about.

You can be my footnote
I climb upon your spine, and break it

that’s Greatness for you.
