Does She Ask Who I Am?

“Does She Ask Who I Am?”

I know my place

Keep me centered

and I’ll make this

ledge a home


I don’t need half

Just a taste

You will belong

in everything I know

Painted with care

Flat and


Always colorful

You see yourself

I see you

She sees you

What color are my cheeks?

Her curls?

Your heart?
