Adjective, British informal 

Inept; clumsy. Left-handed.

“Under the ocean’s umbrella
I have perforated my thoughts
dropped them
one by one
like a lover picking
apart rose petals
loves me
loves me not
loves me

and it occurs to me
swift like the setting sun
I may be
completely cack-handed
at love
but why not try?”
