I am not a graceful person. I am not a Sunday morning or Friday

 

I am not a graceful person.
I am not a
 Sunday morning or Friday sunset.
I am a
 Tuesday 2am,
I am gunshots muffled by a
 few city blocks,
I am a broken window
 during February.
My bones crack on a
 nightly basis.
I fall from elegance with a
 dull thud,
and I apologize for my
 awkward sadness.
I sometimes believe
 that I don’t belong around people,
that I
 belong to all the leap days that didnt happen.
The way the light and darkness mix

under my skin has become a storm.
You don’t see the lightning,
but you hear the

echoes.
