the longest list

if it were only a matter of

a hungry dog and

trash that needed to be taken

curbside ease is how

i would label

my life of ordinary

heroism taking small steps

walking on the stilettos of

hope i wake before dawn

making room for lunch

by noon late

a necessary evil i have long since

stopped apologizing

balls in air i often leave

them suspended distractions

pour in via email paper trails and

inbox errors not a master

juggler some fall bounce and

serendipitously distance themselves

i no longer chase them

grant them permission to

drift with hopes that in the far

off future they will be picked up

again by a more worthy manipulator
