Treasure Island

Poet of the River

(july 27 1994 / California, but move around a lot.)

Am I me? Are You You? (Thought)


I am me, I swear I am me!
If I was not, who would I be?
I cannot be you,
For you are not me.
What should I do?
How can we know?
How can we see?
How do we know that you are you,
And I am me?
If we are not, then who are we?

Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
