s/he lives life from one to the next

hopping along the jilted lovers like

a frog going from stone to stone

just above the water’s edge,

because to be alone for only a few seconds

would terrify this person to the point of

self-awareness &

the looking in the mirror to recognize for a

moment

that what is looking back really ain’t that

lovable,

would shatter the permissible prowess

with which s/he functions

with which s/he holds her/his only power,

for that is what defines them,

the ability to select & use

to feed on the compassion of another

who thinks their aim is to rescue or to

delight, to make interesting the life of someone

who seemed so lost, or so in

need

of a place to stay, a heart pumping, ripe for

the taking &

this needy one can’t go without somebody

listening to the sound of their voice &

proving to them that they are not yet

abandoned.
