Falling Short

fell an inch short, so
she nudged me
over the
line..

though sadly, not
for the first
time,

hope most of
front row’s
judges..

missed our
measly
cheat.

swear it’s not really how
i usually conduct
business

but today i need all the
help i can get
from..

such kind a
stranger..

just to get me
past the
finish.
