begin to cascade, falling
on and building off each other
continuing their domino effect.
I, mistakenly, unconsciously fall
out of place,
the cycle stops for a moment as
ugly faces look upon what could have been.
Now everything before is just a mess
everything after stands, an afterthought
to those actually bickering
about who will pick up the pieces.
I lie watching a single domino on its side,
whose fault is it that it fell out of line.
