Stuck In His Shape

he was all
angles and straight lines
nothing out of place
each piece of the puzzle
fitting snugly together
to ensure he made
a complete whole

he couldn’t bend
-wouldn’t
would never give
a fraction of an inch
out of choice
or by nature?
I was never sure

until one day
he hit an obstacle
he couldn’t go around
or go over
which was when I realised
he didn’t know the answer
either


Back in August, my poem, Stuck In His Shape, was published via Nine Muses Poetry (read my original post about it here).  Sadly, not long after, that venue ceased to be.  It’s always such a shame when beautiful poetry venues stop publishing but I understand how big a commitment it is to run such a project…So I thought I would share that poem here for anyone who might be interested but had missed it.
