[the Writing of Kuypers]    [JanetKuypers.com]    [Bio]    [Poems]    [Prose]


i used to think that i would like to get into an accident
to be injured, to see who would care about me: to see who
would feel bad for not paying me any attention. now i
think that if i were to be injured, that a few of you
would revel in it, that a few of you would like to spoon-
feed me, to take care of me, just to be able to prove
to yourselves that i’m not infallible. but sooner or later
you’d get bored with it, you’d need someone to take
care of you again, and i’d be cast aside. so i’m never going
to give you that chance, i’m never going to let my
guard down, not even once, no matter how much i may
need help from any one of you, because none of you
are willing to think that i’m human and have real needs
