Career Path

just look at us all

swimming upstream in wrong clothes
a wake of sadness swells behind
behaving professionally
holding it in holding ourselves

too tightly

environment is like a wardrobe
buttoned by traffic breath shallow
whilst the lines on your face
branch out in the forest of

a keep it all together culture

and all you want is to slip out
of your dress into a lake and watch
reflections ripple their projection
that changes with the light

move slowly away

from the place of straight edges
cultivate ferns and weeds
as wildflowers grow tall in this
the grand design of your life
