Crash

Rear-ended
by proverbial truck

Unexpectedly, I claim
denying accountability

Sure, I took chances
crossed the line

Rebelliously ignored
limits, road signs

Driven by compassion
open-doored willingness

Saw the danger too late
swerving only mitigated damage

Humiliated by the impact
reckless ego smarting.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
