The Left-handed Self

1 May 2018

See, when I hand the pen
to the left-handed self
it holds it like the stump of a finger,
truncated and clumsy.

It would write backwards if it could,
unwriting the right hand’s
good intentions,
not this crabbed sideways stumble
that slows thought and finds,
unsought,
some other, awkward truth.
