poem: why won’t people look me in the eyes

why won’t

people

look me in the eyes what

is so wrong with

me that only

ghosts ask

‘are you okay.’

and even

they are grimacing at me,

thinking oh this one is

certainly sub-human

certainly not worth what

we

give out as cash-currency

because

she

[and this is where even i cannot insert the reason]

because i

do not know myself

why it is that they make me

so Jewish, long after

high school is

over.

      1. Thank you so much for the offer, I really do appreciate it, but at this point I’d rather keep this blog as something personal. ❤
