Not About You

⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀I’m not about you
⠀⠀⠀⠀when full and complete,
⠀⠀⠀⠀bright as noon down on
⠀⠀⠀⠀an unnumbered street,
⠀⠀⠀⠀not what you knew.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀I’m not your own
⠀⠀⠀⠀to call and command,
⠀⠀⠀⠀surrendering to control
⠀⠀⠀⠀cupped in a white hand,
⠀⠀⠀⠀in my league’s cone.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀You cannot call
⠀⠀⠀⠀me back to your bed,
⠀⠀⠀⠀after this night is through
⠀⠀⠀⠀gracing our covenstead.
⠀⠀⠀⠀I’m not you at all.

    I love how the lines snap like a well aimed whip.
