Muddy Feet

I wandered through this world alone
A cigarette burning
In my hand,
An anger burning
In my mind,
Alone
In this desolate place,
This mud filled arena,
This swampy abattoir;
I traveled
Searching for a lover,
A friend,
An acquaintance,
Who too walked alone.

Then I realized
That I was not alone,
So I thought I was blind and
Still I wandered
Looking
For anyone,
A stranger,
An enemy,
Someone to fight.
Then I realized
I was not blind,
I was only
Looking
Down.
