i want more: Poem

May 27, 2020

 

Maybe it's easy to step over stones

 

avoid crushing flowers as you walk all alone 

 

to look quickly behind you and see if you’ve left a mess 

 

 

 

check for muddy footprints that are hard to miss 

 

 

walk along the curb 

 

 

dangerously close to the edge 

 

 

feel a car fly by 

 

 

a smile tugging at the lips 

 

 

to make it to a light 

 

 

that tells you when to move 

 

 

watch closely knowing these are the rules 

 

 

maybe close your eyes as you pick up the pace

 

 

trust the wind as it whips harshly at your face 

 

 

twirl in a tight circle because you finally have the chance 

 

 

trip on the pavement

 

 

but frown at a stranger as they offer you a hand 

 

 

we move in a way no one understands
