Your torso is a ladder against the back of the chair again. When did it sink this time? But it never falls past the awkward, never enough for you to lie down on the seat and float, gaze resting on the constellations in your eyes.

And Life said, ‘It’s your birthday? Here’s a whopping failure to celebrate!’ Hurray!

A bee sits on the windowsill  Licking up jam, eating its fill. Well, good! I hope you stay that way But, more importantly, stay away! — Daddy long legs? Why, even my legs are longer than yours.

Like ribbons of smoke on the brow of dawn, they do not dance to your rhythm but to the beating of their hearts.
