small things can annoy

if the notes don't quite fit together, and the pauses
in between jar and fight for space, then
perhaps the time signature is
wrong, or maybe it is in the
wrong key?
if the words jostle each other because
they cannot breathe, and the reader
is left running to try and catch
up, then maybe it was written at the
wrong time?
or maybe the space and time that we inhabit
like aliens in dinner suits, is bending
and breaking, and one day we will wake
up and find we are no longer alive, and
that we have fallen through a gap in the
carpet and are stuck between
two floorboards?
