talents

she looked at me
very seriously

if you could be pretty
or
talented, which would you
choose?

i just laughed

made it this far
without being either
guess i would pick
the talent.

she nodded

yeah,
pretty would be
wasted
on someone like you.

i didn’t know
what that meant
just that
she meant it
so i ducked back
under the sheets
aware of where
my talents lay
