CIRCUMSTANTIAL VOCATION
(12/7/13)


I remember
walking along
a West Texas highway
back
in the bad
old days

there
were small
oilfield offices
along the way

people
worked within
them

doing
their jobs

going home
each night
to their families

living
their simple
lives

I envied
them

now
I'm employed
in a building
along
an interstate
in Oklahoma

doing oilfield
related work

going home
each night
to my family

living
a simple
life

wondering

what I
might
have missed

and always
watching
