naked

by Lauren Singer

why do we take signs
we don't intend
to follow?

we are not here
to trade
papers.

i am always
on the brink
of something amazing.

i am
a well-compiled mess.

we exist...

and that's enough.

(sometimes
it just feels so good
to be naked and to not care
who should see your flaws.)

we exist and that's enough. ditto. a few lines back you were on the brink of something amazing. a few lines later you arrived. and the last bit is a sigh of relief.
