Frakture (a poem)

I set this up as a draft, then forgot to click on ‘Publish’…

1
I
shouldn’t break

I shouldn’t break
but

I’ve been thinking

I’ve been thinking

If I could bend like that
I wouldn’t be broken

2
I
don’t break

I don’t break so easily

But I practise drowning
every day

3
I’m not very good at it yet

4
There’s no such thing as perfect
but I practise anyway

5
If I could bend like that…
