Self-Display (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)



O’ Louis, O’Louis
Where ever art thou Louis?

I mockingly hold my hand faintly to my forehead
I am the Juliet with no Romeo

At least I am no star-crossed lover
Instead I am a star-aligned fighter

My body is fully on display for you to read
I give my stories to you to do as you please

But remember that stories are always shallow at the surface
When they are not penetrated and told by the source

I bow to you
And curtesy to me

Let the play begin with good direction
Now that the dress rehearsal has ended

When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
