Am I level? Not really. 

Have I ever been truly level? Only to my friends

Honest, always. 

But to others, it comes and goes.

I tilt, I tilt the truth, I become unlevel

watch the bubble slide, right or left.

I am levelheaded in most cases,

but then, suddenly,

at the drop of a hat,

I’m not.

I am a marble on a floor, not level

Seeking the lowest point.

T.S comes to mind

“I should have been a pair of ragged claws

Scuttling across the floors of silent seas.”

Bubbles rising.

Left Right or Center

Regaining levelness

To see the eyes of loved ones.

DS al Coda

Submission B:

Pandiculation: Noun

A favorite gesture

Sleepy, sensual

Your Song of Myself

Intimate, involuntary

Paired best with your laughter

The alto voice

(The alternate voice)

Your coy smile rising from my lips

Nowhere to go

Nowhere to be

Just this
