balancing act

he balanced
on the border
between
lunacy and cool
the slightest breeze
could tip the scales
and there was me,
the fool,
to set him off
fist-1561157_960_720to kick his rage
to shake the
angry lion’s cage
the egg shells that
i walked on
cracked
a misplaced word
has set us back
and it’s my fault,
of course
i balance
on the border
between
mercy and divorce
