THE OTHER YOU
(8/28/16)

I see
you almost
every day

but
I do not
know you

you live
the majority
of your life
outside
of my observation

you have
friends

family

acquaintances
of whom
I have
no knowledge

I have
no idea
how you conduct
yourself
around them

you seem
pleasant enough
during my short
exposures
to you

you may
be
a saint

you may
be
a serial killer

I like
you better
not knowing
these things

we should
keep
our distance

our relationship
is so much better
when I'm not sure
of your last name
