emotional origami

paper,
angle, bend, crease
toward then away –
following prescribed steps,
crane, of sorts

dog-eared words
folded down, revisited
as we move towards, away
mouthing words we are supposed to say
a paper marriage

    I really like the concept of “emotional origami”. Who gets to do the folding and what shape are you left in?

    That was one of your best, Mims. Now you know why my marriages failed. Yes. Origami. All of my origami look like a lopsided duck. That’s because, if I didn’t duck, I’d be lopsided! 😉
