Issue 2: Mary Christine Delea

Bad Day

Yarn dripping off your sweater:
a skein or so to remind you

of your threshold for pain.
The things that will cripple you

are not the tumble down a rabbit hole
but the regular tiny days

filled with embarrassments swirling
underfoot, making you blush.

Like Anteros, you were created only
to be the plaything of another.

The heavens love it
when you fall.

--Mary Christine Delea
