Upside’s Down

pachyou’re supposed to look up

aren’t you

making your way,

but if you do,

you’re apt to miss the stone underfoot

wound up


to shatter

your glass slipper

overlook the tar on the


beach poised to

gum your tread

fowl up

omit the crap left behind

set to coat

your tootsies


end up

between a rock and a hard pace and

in this sense

or that

looking down is really looking up!

as you move forward

a lateral term for ladder and

synonymous with

what’s up…
