I am the granite of dry elbows dragged on flannel,
a porcupine with a cleaver,
a low table that teeters on stilts.
I am burnt toast, embers fuming for no good reason,
the pot that never boils.
You can taste me in the raspberry seeds
sucked from jam into a mouth ulcer,
feel me in the metal spatula of every step in tight underpants,
sense me in the snare drum in the bathroom.
I am not a walk in the park when the sky is blue.
Look for me in a cave of stomach acid,
in the cat stuck in a closet, waking the door,
in a tangle of knots at the edge of hot buttered nerves.

|This is superb--creative, witty, discriptive. A great escape from the cliches that I have read before this one this morning. Great descriptions of emotions and experiences and feelings mixed together. J.|
