GROUND UP
(7/15/14)


I look
down
at my shoes

standing
here

with my
feet
in them

apparently
belonging
here

since here
is where
I am

my jeans
are faded
and stained

they should
be replaced
but as long
as my ass
isn't hanging
out

they're good

a black
t-shirt

the mood ring
of my soul

I see this
all framed
within my wired
multifocal
correction

I look
up
and survey
a world
not of my
making

not
of my
design

but apparently
of my implicit
approval

because
again

I am
here

and having
remade myself

I take
a step
