the trouble with trouble

8 May

trouble is never welcome

which is the trouble with trouble

perhaps if i greeted trouble

with open arms, as a partner and friend

i’d have less trouble with trouble

i wouldn’t have to avoid trouble

for trouble is simply a gauge

of how much i still have to learn

i haven’t worked out all the twists and turns

that’s the trouble with trouble

so many angles

so many blind spots

so much to learn
