Rubik & me square off again

Why do we want so badly
to paint ourselves into corners?
What is the object of this game?
Is separating colors a skill
you would want on your resume?
If you can’t bring the colors together
on one side, cheat.
Once, in a moment of desperation,
I pulled off all the stickers.
Not everyone knows a blanket
of black holds everything together.
The cracks are how we make a mess
of things without breaking them.
If you can keep your hands off this,
maybe you simply aren’t twisted enough.
Sometimes a sticker unstuck
won’t hold on as tightly the next time.
Fitting neatly into a cube
is not for everyone.
Did I say twisted?
Some people think when we make
everything the same, we win.
