      OCCUPATIONAL HAZARD

      When you read
      the word I in a poem
      do you think
      it means I the writer
      or I the reader
      or I an actor
      who has chosen
      to play the character of I?
      Whom am I going to play this time?
      Will ignorance teach me nothing?
      Only you can say

      You laugh
      I snicker
      You smile
      I sneer
      You dream
      I scheme
      You make observations
      I pass judgments
      You whisper so sweetly
      I mutter things
      under my breath

      See what I mean?
      Words let just anybody use them
      Who cares what you're trying to say
      when a certain word can catch an eye
      or even fire an imagination or two?
      Villains boo me
      Losers never get tired of beating me
      Are you happy now?
      So where will all this pent up language
      find a trigger?
      Only you can say
