titling on tipped toes
unnaturally bending my body to
avoid broken glass
a fatal flaw i figured i could figure into truth
here’s my disclaimer
i have a tendency to be
cautiously clumsy
yes, contradictory
it’s just me,
and its nice to meet
you.



WAIT!
watch your step
skillfully attempt to avoid the million little
jagg





ed
piercing
pieces
pieces that could potentially
pierce

skin
draw blood
leave scars to stain my skin with this memory
of tipped toes weaving through this dangerous maze
of broken glass
see my life seems to be
broken all over the floor
once in perfect proportion i was painless
now i walk on bruised feet
afraid of clear shapes of cold glass
my shaking unstable heartbeat has
radiated through my body onto the floor
causing just enough vibration to
drop





another
glass.
