We've just met
so I could ask
all the usual things
(you know the list)

But I must admit
I don't care about
anything you say
until I know this:

Are you good?
Truthful, honest, kind?
Do you come through
every time?

And when you touch me
with hands smooth or calloused
will you know that I am real
beyond your ego's satisfaction?
