ON MY OWN TWO FEET

I stand on my own two feet
my left foot stands on my right

this is not bright,
my brain says

my left foot retreats

my feet stand side by side

my right foot creeps left
covers my left foot

this is, says my brain, not good

it knows expressions like,
shooting oneself in the foot

and then there's another, it remembers,
about stumbling over one's own feet

but what about
standing on one’s own foot?


my eyes look down

it doesn't even look like
standing on one's own two feet


though actually I'm not standing

I'm sitting

but my feet stand

one on the other
my right foot on my left


how did this start?

why did this start?

it keeps both feet warmer,
it keeps them in touch with each other
as most of the time I'm barefoot


but is that all?

isn't that a bit simplistic?


so what deep and nefarious thing might it say
that I sit with one foot over the other,
top big toe playing with bottom big toe?


both feet are kept still
except for the toes
which keep each other company

neither foot can go forward


but when I stand up
I stand on my own two feet

when I stand up
it doesn't feel comfortable
one foot over the other


in the meantime
I continue to wonder
about my standing on my own two feet
while sitting

A dozen years ago,
I began to wake up
with word pieces -
words music, spoken word, songs -
in my head.
Escape velocity.
Echo of the echo.
Tank almost empty.
Can't cross the gap.
Welcome into my world.
