They Don't Know YouHow can some say they know you
when they can't tell your real smile
from a fake one?
Your fake laugh that they think is real

Your real laugh,
And smile are hidden deep inside.
A place no no one will ever find.

in your childhood where
a parent ought to be.
I've been flooded by Iowa's sorrow.
The only way I can distract her from her own voided landscape
is if I hate myself harder than she cries.
She just wants to fly
and I want to bus or train,
not because I fear death, but because
I want to take living slow.
It's the only way I ever feel.
