How to keep your inner child in denial when she asks what a NPE is

Its finding out what everyone was whispering about

that you can never hear

“You’re daddy isn’t you’re daddy,

you’re a secret,

a product of rape, donation or affair

Someday you’ll find out what you’re real name is

try to hide the word bastard under adult sized pillows

pretend it doesn’t matter

that the first place you met the man who planted you in your mother

was in a graveyard

but for now

just keep playing with LEGO’s,

watch technicolor sitcoms

Pretend you are a wise Japanese monkey

and for a little while

See nothing
