Drifting around my kitchen

A stranger in my own home,

Wondering if I can keep both eyes

On the prize and

At the same time,

On my feelings and words.

I feel like I am

Not getting

Anywhere

With anyone

Or anything.

I want to place myself

Amongst the clothes

And smell of soggy towels

In a washing machine,

And out on the line outside,

Like bait for the fishes,

For a chance to

Realise what the catch is.
