necessity [poem]

people keep telling me
I’m good at what I do
they keep saying that I obviously care
even when I say I don’t
I keep having to explain that
my version of not caring is
doing only what is necessary
nothing extra
but my necessity and what must be done
always land at different levels
and I’m left bemused
as people keep telling me
I’m good at what I do
