Yes, You Can be Them
By Christopher Dimitriadis
Yes, you can be them.
I want you to be them.
Your true self, my darling.
Yes, you can be the ever-loving cottagecore witch in the backyard with your kitty sidekick.
Yes, you can be as masculine as your heart desires.
Yes, you can be all of those things while remaining mine.
I love you for who you are.
And that will never change in a millennia.
And before you know it,
We will be holding one another while drifting off into a dreamland.
Smiling as we embrace each other.
Author’s note: This poem is a response to Aspen Crick's poem "Can I Be Them?", published in last month’s edition of The Plant.
