>Main Street writer’s island #4-clarity

>So curious and circumspect
while christening memories
If you’re in the driver’s seat of confusion
like a crimp in the line
Examining your cuticles for prosperity
Passing on the left of
a crammed cucumber camp
Further up the road is the Chalet of Chagrin
where you may rest for a day
dining with classless folk who eat
crabcakes with their fingers
bibs fastened securely about their waists
Cringing from the scene
All comes forward into clarity 

process notes:
I wrote a list of “c” words,
the result was this poem.
