What am I even doing?
I don’t know anyone here.
I don’t know anyone anywhere.
I was never known. I’m only now just getting-to-know.
I like it, but who knows
what I’m even doing.
I thought that I was known?
Nothing can be known, that’s what I’ve learned.
I thought that I had been recognized.
Now, I know this is impossible.
We are all, inevitably imposters.
Fully disguised, performed,
I hoard my secrets, in every way.
I like it when you polish yours;
go on, show-off now!
Once–you took pictures, kept diaries.
Now–you’ve thrown me away.
All, will surely do the same.
we are all alone,
in our own way.
