I’ve taught myself to bow
My hands to shake
Not shake as in tremors
Shake as in what milk does when it meets someone for the first time 
I’ve taught my heart to love
And my mind to ignore
I’ve taught my eyes to smile
And my lips to kiss
Kiss you goodbye
Kiss you hello
Kiss you “I loved the meal”
I’ve tutored my voice to be soft
And my mind to be hard
Hard to get?
Hard working?
Hard on?
I’ve tutored myself all I know
Why do you now ask for fees?
