no. you go first.
by Jenny Yang

am i really a version of you?
and you a version me?
i cannot agree.
i look into your eyes
because your jokes
and smiles
and delights
they delight.
but really inside
is there something you hide?
perhaps a little prize
very few get to see.
you dare to share
and maybe with me?
let’s both open up
on a count of three.
“kindred spirits”
i believe
are the words that you speak.
but i cannot believe
i am what you seek.
