The Pacing Man

let me tell you of the pacing man
moving his feet to stop his mind
from treading over bygone step
a wandering thought begets another
and another and impels towards
the abyss
and so the impetus for another trek
under the fire retardant sky
where concrete and steel
incubate the disease
and the sun impales with shafts
to wound with beauty
