Your Contretemps
















Maybe to be freed compartmentalisation 
becomes you; & that ability to wax lyrical 
less prejudice of acknowledged category 
sets th’ demand bar at scaleable heights, 
at least in your eyes, & pronouncements 
fly unilaterally; all while naked egos flare 
organically with blatant prescience, they 
are difficult to disguise as only musing 

It is distressing failing to see it your way - 
though fact is you’d annexed space that 
wasn’t your’s first place & taking it away 
diminishes whatever grace does remain; 
however, in the aftermath, that’s stained 
all who precipitate in your contretemps
