Awkward

at the edge of perception

an unresolved fragment

a pendant puzzle

 

that vital reputation

questioned by a thread

an unravelled cotton

 

that sore thumb

locked in a cupboard

on a different shore

 

no pandora peeking

else might fly

an s candle flame

 

to openly acknowledge

and stop the pretence

a precipice, a ridge

 

the subcutaneous burr

for want of a scratch

to get those answers

 

a pendant puzzle

albatross necklace

a karmic burden

 

awkward
