read it

many times

there black on white

you can’t miss what you never had

knowing as I did

all of that was a fat lie

sure as ducks on a pond

go quack

there isn’t much out here

in the world

that don’t point out what you lack

kids you go to school

parents teachers preachers

tv magazines movies

songs on the radio

all pushing a body

compare what you got

against the better life others lead

except here on this line

I love you

just the way you are
