I Fear

“Say fear’s a man’s best friend
You add it up, it brings you down”
                        –John Cale
being labeled
being ignored
being noticed
being exposed
being seen the fool
being the fool
being dismissed
being interrogated
I fear
the consequence of honesty
the mockery of inconsequence
saying too much or not enough
the embarrassments of myself
I fear
others’ misinterpretations
others’ definitions
my misinterpretations
my definitions
my anger
my sentimentality
my self-pity
I fear
losing friends
being old
