Model

Stay long enough
and I’ll plaster
upon you
cookie cutter
hopes and
glossy desires.

I’ve built you
a model
of blocks derived
from wishes and words
not character
nor acts.

Thus, your eyes a blank
canvas
your mouth open
for interpretation
nothing too concrete
Nor too vague.

See, you’re here and
you’re kind—
responsive.
So, don’t do a thing
I’ll paint you
in the light I want.
