I am not a silent poet

*Wearing glasses*

I saw Jeremy in Aldi the other day
I think it was Jeremy
He was wearing shorts
It was cold
He was wearing Jeremy’s beard
I was wearing glasses
He didn’t say ‘hello’
He was feeling shallots
Maybe it wasn’t him
I didn’t say ‘hello’
I was squeezing a squash
Maybe it wasn’t him

That’s the funny thing with social anxiety
When you see someone you know and they don’t see you
Or maybe they do see you
And they don’t say hello
Or maybe they are suffering too
And wonder why you don’t say ‘hello’
Or maybe they made a mistake too

*Wearing a hipster beard*

I saw James in Aldi the other day
I think it was James
But he was wearing glasses
James doesn’t wear glasses
And what’s he doing in this part of town
And why didn’t he say ‘hello’?

I must tell him…

I am not a silent poet

Image 1

Appearances can be deceptive
A truism I know
A perfect form in a perfect place
The camera never lies
Image 2

Yet we are all flawed
Putting our best face forward
Hiding what lies in our shadow
Being strong even though we are half destroyed
