Poem by Juliette Sebock

Worst Case/Best Case: What would happen if I told you I love you?


Worst Case,

Worst Case,

you turn away.

I lose again,

abandonment.


Best Case,

Best Case,

you stay.

New turn of events,

I win.


Worst Case,

Worst Case,

we walk on sand

of eggshells

and glass.


Best Case,

Best Case,

Katrina and

the waves,

clouds, daydreams.


Worst Case,

Worst Case,

you scoff,

call me crazy,

push me aside,


we waste away.


Best Case,

Best Case,

you smile,

call me yours,

pull me close,


we come alive.
