Emma Guzowski

Common sense is a callous phrase

Because there will always be something to expect.

A pity never wished upon,

Yet you and I are different and

Hiding inside an abundance of silent assumptions

We face a distinct type of demand

And even though it hurts to

understand, no matter what I go through

Your common sense will tell you to get what you want

And mine will always tell me to get it for you

A person will keep expecting something back

The sun will continue to shine on the clouds

The dagger will scour for blood

The bruised pear will hang on a tree

I brought you some peonies but

I exhale, will you ever get some for me?
