week 379 ~ the timid change stripes so quickly

with 2 comments

me.379the timid change stripes so quickly
as if in reaction to what
seems too good to be theirs a gut
feeling that unexpectedly
bounces hard when dropped certainty
is in short supply and bad days
circle back bite the hand that stays
outstretched so curl up in a ball
blast through denial block recall
don’t ask why there can’t be always
