staircase poem 40

on foot on the move
listen up people
your observer–participant
is a most challenging wiggle
too busy for his own shadow
to keep attached to his body
he's exiting the building
& heading downhill—where
is he going—need eyes
tell me where he is going
why am i not seeing him
on screen—what is
that building—advancement
alumni & a union office—
why aren't we in there
is that a limp is he
limping is/was he military
or is he injured check
his records his file
