Ragtag Daily Prompt: Wrest
I do what I am supposed to do-
I am polite
I am punctual
I do not throw things when I am angry
I do not buy things when I am sad.
I do not run red lights, I do not push my way to the front of the line.
I do not chew food with my mouth open.
I am simple, predictable, boring.
If there was ever a moment when I could have been wild, done something reckless
stayed out all night and walked home with my shoes in my hand
laughing about that crazy night with the stray dog who followed me home
with it’s head tilted slightly to the side, snickering the way dogs do
that glorious unlived time has passed and laughed at me as it strolled by.
