Collaboration ahoy

From Q, to whom I apologize for being a slowpoke.

Time to write a poem.

Here's how it goes:

I start a poem with a single line. Then, each of you adds a line in the comments. You don't have to be a poet, and your line doesn't have to be brilliant--it's just a few words, after all. You don't need to copy and paste the lines before it into your comment, either. All you need to do is make sure it fits with the preceding lines.

I'll close comments and put the lines together in a day or two, putting in a last line if necessary, then post the poem with the linked names of people who participated (so don't be anonymous, either!).

Ready? Here's the line:

I am a little stiller around the edges

I think that's an excellent ending, so I shall close the comments now.
