don't call me cass

by Cassandra Leigh

as if you have some right to cut
five letters off my name,
especially after i told you
how much i like it.

i don't need you to tell me that i am
not enough
in order to remind myself how
enough i am,
but thanks for the excuse for the
"self-reverential" attitude, as
you like to call it.

which conveniently is also an excuse to
bake cupcakes with
ingredients that cost me
$40 at the gourmet grocery,
mascarpone and apricot and
toasted almond, which i ironically
shared with you after already
sharing way too much else
for little return on
investment.

i said i wasn't mad,
but the truth is i'm pretty
mad. i just wish the reason wasn't
because your skeletons
just beat mine in a duel. i'd say
i want a rematch, but it's still a big
question, and i don't
believe in short answers
anymore.

Raw. Good for you for getting these emotions out. I love how close to the surface they are here.
