Holly Webb - Labels


I see that word hovering at the edge of your sentence,

Cautious. Hesitant. Avoiding my gaze.

The label you need to fit me into your catalogue of friends,



Yet, as I look at you now you don’t seem transparent,

The red in your embarrassed cheeks.

The hazel in your averted eyes.

The only things white here are your half-bitten fingernails.


I see that word trembling on the tip of your tongue,

Curious. Reluctant. Uneasiness growing.

The label that makes perfect sense in your sheltered life,



Yet, as I look at you now you don’t seem double whatever I am

Two legs that keep me walking proud.

Two eyes that stare back at your darting pupils.

The only things half here are your half-witted questions.


Labels do not simplify, they complicate.

We cannot always tick one box.

I do not have a category where I place my friends,

Just a loving jumble of good times and loose ends.
