EITHER/OR

You are the one who listens

who does not ask what are You

but asks when shall I meet you

who asks not for the riot police to call

but asks for the rentboy to pay

for the light in your eyes that

shine grey-ly and not without knowledge of self

and that is why I ask:

Are you able to make me allow you to be

when all I ask is to be myself

and you do not ask, for you

are not either/or but rather

self and selfless in your agony

for the time to tell me

that you love me too.
