In this land (Day 441)


You read me   so slowly  
    like a stranger   

you act 
    like I don’t know 
what you mean  

    when you pretend  
you can’t 
    understand me  

you don’t 
    understand

    a thing  
you don’t 
    know 

    what it means 
to be so alone 
    
in this land  so full  
    of people  all taking 
care of their own
