Confirmation Bias

Matthew Sinex

Alternative content

So when I caught the axe
in my teeth,
what was it you saw?

My flaws like the back
of a hymnal, a dirty word
on a hinge.

When the tightrope
lost my shoe,

the air selected
all of the above.

Then the door brought
talk to ruckus.

The cedar swayed like
one of my apologies,

pinballs in a bucket
at your feet.
