I’m Sorry I Crashed Your Party

The motions of the pen reveal
the words concealed
between the lines –

I hope this finds you well.

In a moment of truth, my shell
came unhinged and fell
from my back, cracking
as it hit the ground.

The sound was not
exactly an earthly sound.

The sound was the sadness
of a milky sky shedding
its skin for the first time,
of breaking apart.

I said I was through
with faking it, and I am,
even if I don’t have a back up
plan or an exit strategy.

The tragedy is that you
still recognize me, though
it could be said
that I wanted you to.

Do not mistake me
for somebody else.

Above all, do not
mistake me for me.
