life is straight

i’d like to now participate
in life’s communal climb;
but i stay curved while life is straight;
it gets me all the time

and then: those times when life is curved,
i’m always going straight;
this is the pattern i’ve observed
i’m dis-coordinate

with whatever my life may be.
i follow, as i will;
but life and i think differently,
and diverge further

One thought on “life is straight
