why he dances with me

why he dances with me

for ten minutes i fell in love
with his awkward sales pitch
because it was supposed to be
me pitching to him

there are only so many ways
to say please without begging

or hiding the word
to hold onto your ego

i’m a peacock too
i wanted to say
but didn’t

eventually our colors
are revealed and
loved or not
without fields or
home bases

i know love
i wanted to say
but didn’t

i knew i’d need
to work hard
to earn the admiration
of feathers
he claimed to see

but hidden deep
within the painfully

unsung
parts of me
