Behind the Eight Ball

by Kathleen Finn Jordan


It’s time to break

The saw toothed stick that helps you aim is ready

The cue, placed behind the rack and the break is on

Balls lunge and dance, skip and sort and it’s gaming time

The eight ball lurks a result of an unclear shot

Hard to see harder to manipulate

Like space and time

Completing tasks and getting on to dreams

Fulfilling oneself and keeping oneself afloat

Behind the eight ball stress bruises the sky and blinds the sun

Everything is made difficult

Eager to run the table one is left

With attempts, and failures, misdirections and miscues

Fighting for life and looking to tomorrow for respite.
