2020-10-19 – 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 my
business

but today i need
all the help
i can con
from

that kind of
stranger..

just to get me
past the
finish.
