Cinquain

Today's poem is a cinquain, the last form I'll be exploring in the haiku family.

A cinquain is a five-line poem in which the syllable structure is 2, 4, 6, 8, 2. The poem should read seamlessly, without any obvious line breaks--in other words, it should sound like a sentence when read aloud. But I'll let you be the judge of that.

Yarn balls
roll off my lap
unwind across the floor
and lodge beneath the piano
smirking.
