A response to a Writer's Cramp prompt. My mind went to proof of klutziness.
         At just one glance, I knew.
         I saw the black, the blue,
         the tell-tale mark chartreuse
         bright on white skin, a bruise.
         
         At just one glance, I knew.
         How did I misconstrue?
         Why did my feet eschew
         a step, a follow through?
         
         At just one glance, I knew.
         I tripped. Hullabaloo,
         downfall, mayhem ensue.
         Moans and curses I spew.
         
         At just one glance, I knew.
         They bloomed, the black, the blue,
         bruises with purplish hue.
         Proof of balance askew.
