I don’t know if I’ve ever said this before
but you are very much shorter than me.
I just thought it should be said.
I’m not laying judgment
and I’m not suggesting a solution
and I’m not even suggesting
a solution is required.
There may in fact be no problem
in the observation
but the observation stands.
You are shorter than me
and I am taller
and at this stage of the game
I doubt very much
there is anything we can do to change it.
The height difference rests between us
plain as the shadows
across your face
due to the light
my body shields from you.
You’re just a tiny little thing,
