Treasure Island

Unknown


I cannot stand it
When you kneel down.
I cannot stand it
When you know my name.
I cannot stand it
When you know where I live.
I cannot stand it
When you walk me home.
I cannot stand it, honey,
I just cannot,
Though I do not want to be the one
That is known by the whole world.
I do not want to be the one
That is put on that poster wall.
I do not want to be the one
That no secrets can keep.
It might sound really weird, honey,
Bur I like to be an unknown creature
That can come to a place
And be able to introduce its name.
I like to be the strange one
That might seem out of place
So when I meet someone that becomes my friend
I shall be happy again.
I do not want you to take a picture of me,
I do not want my face in that magazine.
I only want to be unknown,
So when I do something great
People would not be like
“ Hey, boring,
The same girl again”.
So if you see me at the store
Please act like I am a stranger.
If you see me at my door,
Do not come and just
Ask me about my life.
I have decided, honey,
Who I want to be:
I want to be,
The girl that no one knows,
So when I get home
And see you at my door
I shall finally be surprised.

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
