gauche

clumsy are your body
movements like a dance on
a stage, not graceful, not
flawless.


your mind speaks of
cluttered dishes in the
kitchen, turning the floors
into a war of many things.

    Quite enjoyed the line “your mind speaks of cluttered dishes in the kitchen…” so describes so many people I have known.
