I Wonder

I wonder what would happen if I was unavailable
unable
unwilling
unacceptable
I wonder what would happen if I was challenging
demanding
terrifying
annoying
I wonder what would happen if you accepted all that these lips and thoughts had to say?
I wonder if you would be afraid
curious
and daring all at once.
Jump into this,
into this idea you are trudging away from,
that which wishes you nearer.
Closer.
Where all your wonder
power
gifts
filter and collide with each other,
into canvas
out of breath,
onto blood fragments
off of saliva laments
screaming
crying
daring to tell me all the reasons you
hate
this.
I wonder, are you life and power?
death and shadow?
Or are you a tomb-box sunk in with the rehearsals you learned from other mimickers
you do not know independence
yourself
home
or true love.
I wonder if I was unavailable
challenging
and confusing,
if it would ignite the thing in you called a mind,
to think for itself.
I wonder.
