1. The one you are asked to;
who have heard that you’re a writer and want
you to spin them a web of words, to twist
the alphabet into a lie
strong enough to hold their spirits.
2. The ones you are obligated to;
who have raised you and loved you since
you were a child, whose DNA runs through
your veins and fills the marrow
of your bones.
3. The ones you need to;
who have broken you and beaten you so many
times that you must write to release the pain,
choosing ink over blood, the taste of revenge
over that of regret.
4. The ones you want to;
who are beautiful and complex,
walking metaphors lost among these cities
of ghosts, whose souls your poetry
cannot do justice.
5. The ones you wish you didn’t;
who you’ll make any excuse to write about,
to take their memory and turn it into something solid,
their flesh into words, their souls into metaphors,
their humanity into poetry.

If someone says “I love u” and you say “I love u 2” back, make sure you add “no Bono” so they know you mean that you love them too, not just the legendary Irish rock band U2
