poem inspired by Adrienne Rich

If he is solid
I am weightless
If he is plastic
I am credit
If he is real
I am fiction
If he is platonic
I am lovely
If he is perfect
I am a dream
If he is in pain
I am painful
If he is awake
I am a poet
If he is fiction
I am forgotten
If he is weightless
I am dead
If he is a poet
I am a magician
