Like some monument to comfort
you shirk duty


stroll the reckless streets
on some shapely saunter through
the pages of a mystery novel


window shop for marvels
and sensations

picking and choosing
that which renews your sense
of having nothing

but a chiseled face
and a pedestal of reckless freedom
to stand upon.
