In Passing.

I seek  none of your esteem, but I am fine with your respect.

Your libel passes through no reputation to infect.

I’m numb to your affection though I’m warm to your embrace.

I will brook no insurrection; if you lie, lie to to my face.

If you pepper me with perfidy you may evoke a tear,

but if you loathe me, loathe me loudly

or I’ll never even hear.
