Following a crooked line

head down to stabilize
all that moves
things are more easily
seen when static
follow insight of eyes
taking each step
in lead of vision
plant adjusts seen
tip toe, stomp, leap
what do you see?


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.
