Poem-A-Day Challenge Day 11

prompt: in case of ...

For My Mother

In case of forgetting,
put balance back,

once you are upright
again, and have

forgiven the brandy
glass for shattering

on the tiles, not on
the carpet. Maybe

you are just clumsy
or perhaps the Earth

did one of those funny
tilts on its axis we saw

on  TV last night. In case of
wobbling, don't fall, just

right yourself as
the Earth does

and put balance back.
