you have not asked me

you have not asked me
why i speak with
a limp
tip-toes
echo your right footdragging
……………………………..delay
hesitation does not become you
you have not looked over
my shoulder
to see
i am blind
in one eye
reading only half notes
and half words
and half of my thoughts
it is hard to release
…..the po..em
….the po..et…….ree
the po…et
………me
when i speak with a limp
