break yoself

a teacher once told me that cleverness
is only cleverness when it is
thinking out loud, and all that matters
is not how much you are ready to inflict
yourself on to the world but
whether or not you are capable
of revealing yourself to the world
without trying.

how convenient then
that i am the type of person
who goes to a bar ‘to get healthy’
and ends up forgetting who he is

so that when everyone sees me
shedding my clothes at Last Call
they’re reminded that
maybe all real love is
love in the dark and
that maybe the most
embarrassing thing in the
world is to be forced to watch
someone who has nothing
to reveal.
