the symbol of the sign
the meaning of life
for an autumnal dyke
my life a struggle
an effort
to achieve balance

fall in love
with a libran
walk the tightrope
two up, two down
one down, one to go
fall in love
with no-one

perfect balance
on the fence
of indecision
on the precipice
of nothing
on the edge
of a blade

perfect imbalance
the scales tipped
in my favour
coming up roses
from the pit
left of somewhere
going nowhere

being loved
a sagittarian
arrow to my heart
through my soul
smooth security
soft and warm
in the balance
of the womb
