No Right

I am comparing things

that have no right to be



Seinfeld to The Shining.


A cookie and a carrot.


The sound of rain on

the air conditioning unit to the

clatter of heels.


I am comparing

the kiss of

a close friend

to the kiss

of a near stranger.


You kissed me for


I am.

He kissed me for

who he thinks

I am.
