What does she want?

alluring inertia, or
compliant stasis.
maybe both?
running on
the spot
leads to
no where
and fatigue.
adapt to


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.

Cross-walk around

have you ever cross-walked?
i know i haven’t.
i think i’ve crawled,
walked, maybe even
but cross-walk?
i’ve walked across
a cross, although
not on Jesus’
i don’t need to be religious
to respect their idols.
i figure this kind of
walk would prove cumbersome,
much like the word,
such a mouthful,
which i don’t think
you’d want when
doing a cross-walk.
