Funambulists




you'd think
by now
we'd get more right
than we do
you'd think improvements
hard as consistency
easy as dream
would evidence
and propel us into love
or a more reasonable alternative
but here we are
screwing up
screwing each other
and ourselves
and sufficiently content
to make do with complaint
at first and then regret
bookends to disappointment
