November PAD 10: Casting

Today's Prompt: Write a poem from a different perspective.

Today's Poem:


I am tired of morphing into what you want
to see.
You—laying there on the prickly lawn,
pointing at me, calling me cotton candy—
you all look the same from up here!

I will be myself: fluffy or cumulus
or sparse or thick or foreboding.
Just stop making me out to be
a puppy.

Today's Ponderings: I was the third poet to post a comment on Poetic Asides and I thought I was fast! I will definitely write more with this prompt.
