perspective

traffic hurries through the intersection
   as if their lives depended 
      on reaching the other side
         salmon headed to spawning grounds

bodies walking through the stores
   eyes glazed over as they search
must find that one thing
         that will make life complete

violence, hatred, despair
   the news floods the airwaves
      with its toxic messages
            to hungry consumers who live
   for that final score

like a top, spinning
      lightly tapping into an obstacle
   before twirling away
            a slight wobble as energy wanes
it is difficult to maintain the path
   when nothing 
      is constant

in a world of millions
   alone
in a city of thousands
      alienated
an observer of everything
         partaker of none

      forsaken
   adrift in a sea of nothing
valueless and empty

               and so very, very tired
