Day 265: Embrace Me

Embrace - Billy Collins

You know the parlor trick.
Wrap your arms around your own body
and from the back it looks like
someone is embracing you,
her hands grasping your shirt,
her fingernails teasing your neck.

From the front it is another story,
You never looked so alone,
your crossed elbows and screwy grin.
You could be waiting for a tailor
to fit you for a straightjacket,
one that would hold you really tight.

  1. Part of making your bathroom clean is ensuring it remains functional. Run a rag around the toilet’s base regularly to test for accumulating water. If you see small amounts of water seeping out, the sealing ring could be wearing out, a sign of bigger leaks to come. | | | | | | | | | |
