The Shoes Hit The Pavement - Poem by Jeff Gangwer

Circular movement:
The shoes hit the pavement....
Then some gravel;
Then some grass;
Then the pavement again—
Soft—then hard....
The movement is consistent
And controlled
And rhythmic....

The road—
Countless paths on a single cut:
Divisions and cracks
And rollers
And suggestions of movement—
Circular movement:
The road runner works;
He runs and he works
And his path is decided:
He runs and he works and he continues....

    Careffully written staff, evoking the monotony and the recurrence of movements plus a hidden optimism (Report) Reply
