#100peoplepoems part 95: Rachel

This is for Rachel Bower.

Sometimes you meet someone

So utterly nice

You kind of want to believe 

That it’s a trick

That nobody could be

So utterly nice

And yet there they are

Defying this cruel world 

By being

So utterly nice.

And when they are attacked

For being

So utterly nice

You find that you were always afraid

Of being

So utterly nice

In case someone objected

To you being

So utterly nice

And simultaneously

You want to be just

As utterly nice

And also

You want to fight.
