Left Out

I’m right-handed
but left-sided
if you know what I mean
which you probably don’t.

I write with my right hand
I throw with my right hand
badly, but I throw worse with my left
which, I guess,
is also the case with how I write.
I read once about mixed-handedness,
where one is capable of doing things
equally well with both hands
and I suppose the flip side
is doing things equally poorly
with both hands.
Maybe that’s me.

But then there’s my other leftishness:
I have one functional ear and eye
both on the left side.
On the right
are vestigial organs.
I keep the ear around
mostly to hold up my glasses
and the eye stays
because cybernetics are still bespoke.

I’m a creative
so maybe I’m left-brained
but probably I’m hare-brained
though clearly I’m not hair-headed
and sometimes people suggest both
that I’ve left my brain somewhere else
and not in my right mind
but that’s neither here nor there.

I just wanted to to write all this down
while I had paper left
so I could get it just right.

I used to write quite a bit more.
