What IF … sens[I]t{I’ve} was … US?

What if there are people so sensitive 

to stuff,

that toughing a life out 

ain’t no option at all?

And what if I’ve done this, and what

if … I am?

And what if I was, and what if

I lost you because I sensitive-saw you

before you even did yourself?

And then here’s another thought, unsought –

but welcome all the same:

what if you saw the real me inside me before 

I ever realised myself 

it was here?

And so if I can see different and recapitulate 

my state, why can’t you walk the same 

journey to glory and fame?

I love you, dear Claire: for whatever you’ve done.

I love you, dear Claire: 

for your B

and 

your C!
