Assumption
unknown

For him it’s a given that
 1
I’ll write and succeed
 2
so he blows me off.
 3
 
I cook,
 4
make wine, cheese,
 5
sculpt in paper, in clay, in cake
 6
I paint, I draw,
 7
 
all excellent achievements
 8
his idea of me allows no flaw
 9
to him I am perfection
 10
I am banked.
 11
expects me to compound on my own.
 12
 
I am no treasure
 13
just a colander of steel
 14
and the clear juice
 15
drains into the cup
 16
while the meat
 17
stays behind.
 18
 
and I want him to taste
 19
the meat.
