Ice Castles

I have practised
walking on ice
my entire life,
tried to learn
how to gracefully skate
over ridges and bumps
only to end up slipping
time and time again.
I am used to falling
through abundance of carelessness
on hard ground
with friendly strangers
who are all too willing
to pull me to my feet.

I have practised
walking on ice
my entire life,
and while I’ve fallen,
but no one ever told me
what to do
when the ice breaks apart.
