BIGGER [by dallas clayton]

The next time you get to standing on your chair
at the head of the room
face changing shades
voice giving out
all ready to punch
and be punched

think about all the rotten hairstyles you’ve had
all the favorite shirts you’ve kept in rotation
well past their prime
all the relationships you wish you’d never
even attempted
and try to remind yourself
how nice it feels
to have your mind changed
from time to time.

It’s a real first class luxury
being human
making mistakes
realizing it isn’t always about you and your convictions.

What a perk
to be able to admit you were wrong
when you really were
to have someone say
“That’s okay, we’re all wrong sometimes.”
and to climb down from your chair
gather yourself
and keep on dancing.
