The Me - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

here is my comma
marked in ink -
and from there
two centimetres away
my full stop
marked in ink too
between them
draw a straight line
here, that is the place, space
one would value me
where your mind
would be caught
about the real me
it is normal
the world works that way
just look around,
away from the line
or draw a circle around it
and you would find
the real me - all over
