Extremely Personal - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Is it big?
How big is it?

'What? '

You know?

I don't know.
What on Earth are you talking about? '

As if you didn't know...
With that broad smile on your face.
Your EGO!
How big is it?

I do wear a ten and a half shoe.
And the size of my hands are ten too.'

What about your EGO?

'That depends,
On the 'time' you are willing to spend...
Allowing me to reveal it.
Some things I like to keep,
Extremely personal.'

Forgive me.
I don't intend to get 'that' close.
