Imposter - Poem by Tom Berman

I am the imposter
within the poet
imposing on your innermost
tweaking at your heartstrings
in the heat of summer
grinning to see
how you react
to my perceived
oh-so-serious façade

a malevolent imp
making free
with others’ emotions
positing good faith
laughing behind the bushes

crying to myself
when evening falls.
