**Poem** **RCs in XAT 2022**

1st poem – I smiled at you because I thought that you, Were someone else; you smiled back, and there grew between two strangers in a library Something that seems like love, but you loved me (If that’s the word) because you thought that I was other than I was. And by and by we found we’d been mistaken all the while From that first glance, that first mistaken smile.

2nd poem – It hurts to walk on new legs: the curse of consonants, the wobble of vowels. And you for who I gave up a kingdom Can never love that thing I was. When You look into my past you see only weeds and scales. Once I had a voice now I have legs. Sometimes I wonder was it fair trade?
