Kingdom (Repost September 2015)

I am the Queen
Of my kingdom
With my tattered paper crown
And its dog-eared points
My throne
Is wedged into the right corner
I sit there, upside down
For it is easier to look
At a person’s feet
By the afternoon
My throne has shifted to the middle
And I have to push it back into its corner
But, what can I expect
When I have built my castle
Out of Paper Mache and doubt
Always keeping a match in my back pocket
In case of emergencies
