Life Abstracted | A Poem by G.S. Katz

I’m an opposite of the general population
I’m either upstream or downstream
Rarely mainstream
Translation: I don’t fit
I’m chronically shy but
a good actor
Quiet by nature
Women love me because I listen

Is that why you are drawn to me?
Or is it the sex?

I’d like to know
