Do I want to be caught?
By success? Fuck no! Then I should be worried about
Competition, Gains, Authority.
By love? Please! I will be hearing things about not being
Romantic, Good in Bed(which I so am), Good enough.
By money? Nahhh….. I don’t want a piece of money
Determining my worth, my value.
But all these thoughts persist. No matter how much
I try to drive them out of my head.
They also seem to chase me for unwanted reasons,
A job I am not happy with, A partner who just wants,
And money which is not of my earning.
