Has Anyone Seen My Aplomb?

by Tonja Taylor  
1/15/2020 / Poetry


Has anyone seen it? (My dear aplomb)
Maybe I left it behind at home

Or put it on a secret shelf
To wear when I didn't like myself

I had it yesterday; it was clearly seen
Or so to my keen intellect it seemed
Didn't I infer what they implied? I thought t’was my aplomb they spied Sparkling. striking. powerfully pleasing, “It becomes you," they said. (They may have been teasing) Surely it didn‘t fall and slip Down the sink while I did dishes
Now lost on some iridescent trip Of ethereal suds and wishes? Did the maid, in cleaning determination Think it dust or an aberration And remove it forever from its place
In the small room where I powder my face?
I wore it with such poise, and grace With style, panache, finesse. But now I‘ve misplaced my aplomb And everything's a mess. It's quite the faux pa I’ve made I guess: but even so The moi l was I wouldn‘t trade For the new me I now know.
