Not a container 
for your perceptions. 
Not a box to stash yourself in. 

Seek no hard place in me.
You should not feel free
to come in and grind an ax.

Not a brand
or logo to wrap around
some crap you want to sell.

Be yourself with me
while I am being myself,
precisely because I strive to be

wholly myself. Let’s enter into 
tandem being.
Side by side. Enough.
