When I’m Not Enough

When I’m Not Enough

I make a long list
of everything wrong
with me
and my hair
how I see things
sideways
and make people
want to leave me
in a field
in a lightning storm

I sometimes
wonder how to fix
the machine
in my head
without being able
to see it

So instead
I write a poem
and if I’m lucky
I can use it
as a mirror.
