arrogance

I remember clearly her snide aside

this one has the arrogance

& I wondered long on that one

how had she surmised that shit

in such a short time

& for every finger pointed forward

there are three pointed back I’m told

though that half covered the day

the truth lay elsewhere another place

I had no competition with them

no urge to over come

& they as climbers over others

felt me as coming through numb

taking that as arrogance

in some way I’d already won
