lover

it doesn’t matter
what you say
what you think of
me

i own my truths
and my lies
with steely eyed
confidence

it doesn’t matter
that my body
is not perfect for
pictures

every fold
a triumphant valley
every scar
a sacred highway

it doesn’t matter
that you leave me
stuck
between hard places

i know my territory
i don’t wish for
more beyond
fences

it does not matter
if i never
see you
again

i will be grateful
our paths crossed
and i’ll wish you well
my friend
