Sanity

Date - October 11, 2014     By Connie Koprowicz

I tried to hold my sanity

In my hands

But it ran between by fingers like

Melted butter

Leaving slippery grease on my half-hearted grip

grown weak from arm wrestling

and cradling babies old enough to walk.

So I let that sanity jello slosh!

Jello soup sanity in a skull-shaped Tupperware container –

That’s the way I hold my stake on this world.

Wearing a woman’s gloves made of honey:

Flimsy,

Dripping,

Unsure.
