Back-Side

I manicure my front yard
        I care about the wheels of my car
                I even polish the chrome on my bike

I wear the clothes that flatter
        I make sure my hair is styled
                I check myself twice before walking out the door

I am careful about what I say
        I don’t want to sound dumb
                I work hard at being impressive

If it is seen, it matters
        this much I know
                so, I hide what embarrasses

Yet…

You don’t care how much I have
        You don’t fuss about how I look
                You don’t need to be impressed

Because
        You know
                You see
                        You love
                                even
                                        the back-side
