soft

 

At the office

I want to be respectable

 

So I wear flat shoes,

 

I feel like an orb

A soft mass in a fragile,

hard shell, a white and chalky oval.

 

One wrong thing I say-

Maybe if I don't say enough-

I will puncture and spill, come splitting out,

 

Vibrant and sickly,

gel and yolk of yellow anxiousness,

my facade crashing down,

leaving nothing but a memory of the unmarred ivory

that might have been

stone.
