All it takes is one misstep
within an inch of center, left or right
close margins all.
And I, am not
a juggler extraordinaire.
I pretend to have the plates all
A cup out o’ place
and all tumbles down.
I’m no circus performer
I don’t have the dexterity
or flexibility or skill.
I lack the patience for practice.
I’m not meant for this balancing act.
I don’t juggle well and I’m not sure footed
anymore. I go against the grain.
I am in a negative flow.
