See John

See John.
See John be.
John is, but not statically.
John is performing his is.
John is busy be-ing.
Perhaps John is unhappy
with who he thinks John’s been
with his subjective inability
to really see John be.
(What will others think of me?
If I can’t see who I am,
how will Jane understand?
How will I see Jane?)
God knows, John;
there’s hope for you.
More than pasts
more than presents
more than are, we do.
