August #1

Knowing it is right

makes it
legitimate
if it fits
wear it

also sets
you up
for a fight

some call that
civilised debate

the thing is
it pulls you
off centre

you have to
grab hold
to regain
balance

anything
will do as
long as
you get

through,
both feet
firm, body
up right

— Jennie Fraine

  1. Nice rhyming. And that's quite a journey you take us on so succinctly.
