… The art of engagement tend to allude me,
like water under a bridge from a distance.
Social behavior is desired beyond words.
And harder than talking to a policeman,
after a parent’s attempted suicide.
… You want it so bad, it can’t happen.
You get done doing the yard, and-
pulling the mower into the garage.
Feel the squish of struggling bird-
under your feet. It makes this smell.
… You try to dart or dance away.
And stomp on another one. You get a shovel;
might as well get used to it.
We hurt more by accident.
And repay wonderful kindness with clumsy intention!! …
