i can throw words
out of balance

yet i’m small ~ yellow
a secret question

a stopway off its hinges
i grow a little more infinite

within human limits
~ my door’s hungry

mother says don’t eat
with your mouth open

mother says don’t talk
with your mouth full

but i’ve always
been otherwise ~ yellow

i wear a light sweater
now that it’s April

and the sun is peeking out
to see where i am next

absorbed in restraint, or
inventing a fire escape

  1. Yellow. Sometimes seen as symbolising fear, sometimes joy – but I like, ‘i’ve always / been otherwise’.
