Eggshells


With smiles
fragile as eggshells
we tiptoed around
everything of importance

Settling for
safe
mundane
topics

Like last week’s news
and the color of your dress



Indifferent & yellow.

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
