I don't know. I WANT TO WRITE AND NOT WASTE PAPER BECAUSE I AM POOR SO THIS IS WHERE I AM DOING IT.

First I was baby 347251

Born to Taranaki Base Hospital

09/09/93, a hefty 9 pounds

I did not know the world

Then I was Looby-loo

Stumbling around mother's chimney legs

in bed on a Sunday morning

I did not know the world

Then I was snowflake

White skin in a sea of Arab

hijab, shukran, do not use left hand

I did not know the world

Then I was Emmy

Mousey-brown greased hair

an ugly ducking among a thousand swans

I did not know the world

Then I was Em

Doc Martens with ripped tights

Passion of MDMA pulsing through my veins

I did not know the world

Then I was nothing

Hard nights; harder days

Razor blade smiles

I did not know the world

Then I was yours

Sheets tangled around morning feet

Picnics and drunken smiles

I did not know the world

Now I am me

I am all of this and none of it

I am the suns risen and the nights set

And still

I do not know the world
