Let Me Clumsy Dance – March 2011

Let Me Clumsy Dance

do not let raindrops
fill up my vision
let me –
be a slave to the stars
avoiding all umbrellas
fairytales –
and cinderellas
do not let me be –
entertained –
by loose jugglers
and lost jesters
let wives cross –
before they fester
and tie me –
to the umbilical cord –
of depression
let me celebrate
and clumsy dance
through my living life
signal no blackout
for those without light
