Porcupine

Posted: April 14, 2019 in Uncategorized

I like the idea of meditation
more than I like meditating.
I am not demanding
but I am easily disappointed.

I am not hard to please
but I have very refined standards.
Well-meaning and empathetic
I am nevertheless off-putting.

Not my fault by default
I was born a porcupine.
You wanted a hug anyway
cried when you came away bleeding.
