Love ItLove It

sticking out like a sore thumb

It is easier, I suspect

to keep

the thumb safety in the glove

in the pocket

away from sharp edges

and icicles with teeth that rend and tear.

but the imperfection must be handled!

We must find the moment

within the impact

as the explosion

flows outward from us. 

flinging as if the intent

had only ears of stone.

Each time wondering. Each time

further and further

flinging more and more

until

there is no more

and

remembering the sore thumb

placed back in the glove

back in the pocket

to live another day.
