Robot baggage

He notices
That I’m
Robotic
Behind this wall
This high wall
Topped in barbed wire
Patrolled by trained killers
He notices

He knows
(I suspect)
That I’m holding back
That our enthusiasm
Is not equal

He admires
My sarcasm
Quick wit
My tools for deflecting
Him

He shouldn’t
Be expected
To bear the weight
Of this baggage
My baggage
(Origins: unknown)
Even though I’m
Fairly certain
That he would
Given the opportunity

This robot
Walls up
Baggage plentiful
Distrusting and afraid

This robot
Has an awfully lot to work out
In very
Very
Short order
