I Didn’t Tell You I Wanted to Be The Deer, A Poem by Chris Russell

I didn’t tell you,

I now have to sneak up

on myself in order to think

clearly. I didn’t tell you the

truth when we went walking

in the field out back. Which

was that I walked behind

you where you wouldn’t see

me so, I could look up at

the sky without you getting

mad, as you explained how

to find deer by being silent.

I didn’t tell you I wanted

to be the deer.
