Each foot

assigned a mission

and in moving forward

the steps falling behind

and lying in front

like a child ready for their first

taste of freedom

their first adult moment

savoring the steps

you hear them

the footsteps

some that get away

don’t fall in the echo line of the other steps

racing off in

directions that the other steps do not

or

sometimes will not

or

cannot follow

the one lost footstep taking

with-it

some small piece of what could have been

lesser now

a house divided

a house

that will not fall

but leaning

waiting for

the lost footsteps to return

will they?

The fog slowly covers

the path before

and the path after

and the footsteps separate further

time adding a stamp

to a long trail…
