Day Two Klutz For You

I cannot even try to make this up.

I was facing. Making the soup aisle look beautiful. It was going great. But there were a lot of people in the aisle making it a little awkward.

I was reaching in to grab a can when my elbow caught the can of Campbells Blazin’ Hot Chili. I tried to catch it I really did.

I did not.

Instead my left foot caught it and then it rolled under the shelves. I was standing there a little shocked and could say nothing because well customers everywhere! I dropped to my knees to grab the can and it had rolled to the other side. Of course!

I walked around and picked the can up. Returned and finished facing the shelf.

My toes are a little blue.

Walk My Way

I see
side long glances
hushed whispers
know you point
know you wonder
why I stay
when he so flagrantly wanders.
You do not see the bruises
you see not the bites
the brutal words
tearing through soul
tearing through dignity
threats upon son
lusted looks upon daughter
stay I must
protect them I will
if it cost me
my last breath.
Wooed
loved
strangled
steps of enslavement
money
bled straight through
tied to him
there is no fleeing
no letting go
for should I
children
near and dear
no stability would be had.
Heaved breath
timed tears
blood falls
splatters
went for me
feared for life
hooded eyes
look at me not
until you walk
more than a mile
in these shoes
than come to me
judgement accepted
I promise thee.
