Learning to crawl

That first step is the hardest,
it’s the abstract that counteracts
reality,
your ideas of real are really not mine,
mine are the flip chart
the start of the rainbow
the unicorn and her dancing show
the things we feel
what can you disprove?

remove me from the equation
and what have you got?
straight lines
shipping lanes
trains of thought that
take you to stations
that are already there,

Scot free?
yes
I got off
quite easily,
never got trapped or
stuck in the mud and
it’s all good

Tomorrow is where I
thought it would be,
yesterday
behind me
and
today,
here to see
how your reality
really doesn’t
affect me
