Malfunction

Image from istockphoto.com

I could say
that the pieces are in place
that the deepest creases have been greased
and that I now possess the steely demeanor
of a well-oiled machine

I could pretend
it all functions
with the graceful ease
of a veteran wing
instead of
the awkward stumbling
daily
drop
from the nest
