interviewer: "And what if no one believes your truth?"
Sonmi: "Someone already does."
-Sonmi 451, Cloud Atlas

It wasn't just

in the way he taunted the crowd

with wild hips

and magnetic eyes


No, It was more

in the way

of when no one saw him

or when he thought no one was looking

that his fingers brushed against

other parts of his skin

his lips, nose, eyelashes,

or ran through his hair

and then tucked it behind his ear


The same ear that was subjected

to the groaning of older men

listened carefully to The 1975, Metallica, Beethoveen-

at 3 am


all in the same night.



And when everything became a blur to him

it became clear to me

that his beauty was

Something Else entirely


than what i had
