To Every Church Boy

by Lacy D Phillips

you're asking me to be something
I myself don't even need
and I don't think that works
me with all my quirks
laughing just to hear myself
sound alive
in the absense of sanity
and sex drive
You who have listened more carefully
than I have cared to speak
and I think now that says something
about us
but most of all about me
and what I don't need
and that's a shoulder to cry on
'cause if I did cry
I'd know why...
and it wouldn't be about you...
