On Mistakes: a poem

It’s often a painful process

growing from mistakes

to be grabbed by both ears

and grabbed by both ankles

and pulled

and pulled

it feels like you’ll

be halved most times

and stretched

and stretched

until you’ve grown a

whole inch

 

but if you’re covering both ears

well

it’s like being grabbed

around your neck
