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
picking and choosing
that which renews your sense
of having nothing
but a chiseled face
and a pedestal of reckless freedom
to stand upon.
Published in Dare to Soar, 2013. Available at any bookstore worldwide.
