Miss Tilt-a-World@


I might be broken
I'm first person but second-hand
I come as I am---
the only model like me

I'm no sales charmer
giving you my pitch
if I'm not your favorite snack
feel free to return me
but don't put me down
as I can move back to before you found me
and I can find my own way back

The genuine article
the soft and the pointed shoe
ask me a question
and I will tell you my truth

I'm not in need of someone
to complete me
its okay to be unfinished too
it simply means that
there's life left to live within me
a lot to do
on my to-do list

some see only my flaws
where I see opportunities
some wrestle with fear
some hang out with doubt
and think they got the grift
on what I'm about and
make the error of
counting me down for the count

I know
I can't count on the next sunrise
so I don't take things
as always being there
living's in the details
in the silences
in the listening and the shares

I maybe poor
but I've countless riches
in laughter and understanding
and flawed love to share
I won't tell on you
let the world know
you're flawed and that I know
where your glitch is

if you want me
seize me in my moment
that is the only place
the last space
where you'll find me
