The Poet Community

Untitled | A Poem by Adam Levon Brown

Constrain me with labels
as you won’t begin the quest
to understand who I am

File me under the folder
of things you think I am
while ignoring what I say

Sweep me under the rug
of socialized groupings
and forget about me

Never try to understand
the complexities of my
very existence, for that
would be far too much work
