opportunities

If you’ll get up

on a misty cold morning

with a right foot first

barefooted passed the

sharp-edged polished

glass tabletop cautiously.

Too often you’ve hit your leg

below the knee’s festering wound.

Make a happy face to a sad

situation

as B already up

prep’s her Halva fruit and milk.

You rub your face and cut your

own fruit into a glass bowl

add yoghurt  chia  cinnamon.

Not all’s well but your health

while B still labours

throws at you her skin and bones.

On top of it life hurts

could you still climb a mountain

of debris

to make some opportunities

be yours?
