Spaghetti knots

you you me

i was born

from a baby

on her knees

cleaning and hanging on

to the floor

like a bat to a cave

but she scrubs too well

and slips

and starts again

erasing herself

and the blood

she never learned

how to suck up


where do you you

is it here reading

or in your mother

carrying her on your back

those first few days

or in a silent hush shared

between test takers who

don’t know the answer but can

figure it out if only given the time

and the quiet to find

movement in stillness

noise in silence

that leaves them with a grade great

from an education that they forget

when they become someone else

than who they were

and who they saw in you

or is it

when i say

you you me

as though i know you

like i know me

even though

on most days

i forget both


be selfish

with your time

and you

like others will

be selfish with you

for them


forget others

like they have forgotten you


forget me

stop reading


i’ll help

like no other

other ever will
