Periphery

Out here on the periphery

you’re in good company

you are exactly where you need to be

able to wander the world with eyes wide open

unchained, unhindered

free of cliques

they get too stuffy

anyway

some cats are too busy being cool to realise they’ve

wasted the best eight of their nine lives.

 

I’ve always been an outsider looking in

personally, I prefer to breathe the fresh air

of the wilderness and on occasion

the stale odour of reality

coming from the seat just across from to me

on this train to nowhere

I choose to lose gracefully

As I drift off the edge of the horizon.
