Your Daughter Thinks You’re Middle Class

Security is something
You don’t want to talk about
Too loudly. Whisper your wish

For it among friends. Promise
Some of it to potential
Romantic partners. Provide

A sense of it, a pretense
Of it, to any offspring
Who is dependent on you,

But don’t go bragging on it.
The secure understand this,
And that’s how they fool the frail

And truly precarious
Into thinking we’re like them,
Fairly safe, if they’re like us.
