like boxes/1 - WWC #62

By tootwofoursquare

i fall in love with men


the way boxes fall


down stairs -


heavily, clumsily,


rattling -


corners catching


between pretty balusters


turned to tumble backwards,


headfirst into


entropy.


a careless fall


a carefree tumble that


leaves me hoping 


the fragile things inside


      wrapped in tissue,


      still waiting to be unboxed


all remain in


tact.
