Down

Recently i’ve been dropping things,
like hot tea pots and pens,
warm milk and ink
spread out in lilac puddles
at my feet.

Recently i’ve been dropping things
and catching strings and threads
in splinters in the doorway
as I pass.

Recently i’ve been dropping things,
like lunch dates and hands
and plans
and all the plates I spin on sticks
and all my other circus tricks.

No longer the clown.

Recently, i’ve been feeling kind of down.
