Seen Together

Instead of Seen on TV,

we are together

in this scene.

Two mismatched people

of missing socks and lost posters,

and we stumble over

each other’s words


You keep trying to place 

a piece of cardboard

under my right foot

to keep me from wobbling

and tipping at each sentence,

but I kick each piece to doorway

with all your lame conversation starters

while saying Too Slow Joe.

We pull the seams together

until we unravel into loose threads

and seen as one of jumbled knots

and ransom note love letters.

We all are loose stems and melted wax

pooled into the center of the table

and seen together.
