Close

My world feels different to yours, curves with sharp edges. How did I learn to tell the difference

between you and I

I and not I?

Not I and everything that is not curved with sharp edges?

Not I bleeds when the sharp edges come close

my world feels different to yours,

you are different,

I am distinctly not you and we are both not I. How did I learn to tell the difference?

Where did Not I go

After the sharp edges came close?
