Original Poem: Extra

You say I’m too much

Too loud

Too grating


I’m

Extra

Extra

Read all about it

A walking billboard

Of emotion

And energy

And wind-whipped gestures that seem out of place

But I’m not too much

Just right

Just enough


I’m

Extra

Extra

Only if you’re focused

On how you can label me

a threat

Unwelcome

When my bright, authentic self takes up space
