April 17, 2011 – Blocked Before I Could Begin

Blockade thrown forward
signaling defense preset.
Vague snub is needless.

Random pulls subject
my body to twists and turns.
Train whistles all stop.

Jerked backwards, I slip
sideways slamming into you.
Express ticket lost.

Three circles to rest,
zigzag path to shake pursuit.
Meals not included.

Awkward ride still points
right direction for my home.
Warm blanket brings sleep.
