Hut, hike, live

one foot behind,
the other in front.
what’s next?
planted firm, does one
uproot for higher ground?
stability secured by
a mobility that’s not.
forward momentum
achieved laterally.
shuffle and stutter gains
not typically rushed.
goals determined by
distance over time,
one must plan
for fumbles.

Playing towards a new game

games are fun.
i like playing them.
i’m not the best,
nor am i good.
maybe i’m the worst,
but i can follow.
the rules are confusing
and always changing.
on top of that,
there are other players.
if understanding the rules
weren’t difficult enough,
now i must understand
these players.
if not at least try to be
conscious
of their playing.
i find it easiest to play alone,
but get confused with more players.
i shouldn’t get so anxious.
as far as i know,
we’re playing the same game.
each with their own
interpretation.
i must adjust my game
to encompass more than
just myself.
shit,
i think
i’ll start a
new game.
