Art & Humor: Tiny Builders and the Agony of De-feet


A former dancer, I know the steps

the routines, the scenery, the partners

and how to coordinate with and clear them all.

If ever I find the mental strength and intuitive ability

to fly free across my living room floor

without suffering injury from a young engineer’s building block,

(be it Lego or Bristle, cleaned up on the hour),

bestow upon me an award greater than I have ever received while dancing.

Or perhaps now slippers are in order.
