The Writer’s Almanac: “Someone I Cared For” by Cid Corman

Someone I cared for

Someone I cared for
put it to me: Who
do you think you are?

I went down the list
of all the manypossibilities
carefully — did it
twice — but couldn't find
a plausible one.

That was when I knew for the first time who
in fact I wasn't.
