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

Poetic Sojourn


About Scott Schoffstall

I'm a relatively new poet having started in earnest 11/2010. I have sought the authentic and am still on that quest. I've diverged from the norm yet always reached for the universal. My interests were always beyond the here and now. Beyond the taste, touch, smell, hear, see. Where the mind and the spirit transcend the physical. They say perception is reality. Is it? Are we truly all there is? View all posts by Scott Schoffstall
