Today I watched Hooper,
a movie I had never seen,
not the sort of movie
I would usually see,
but I had gone
shoe shopping
and came home tired,
without shoes.
Just as well,
since there was
no money in the budget
for shoes.
Right now life is like
a cycle of getting
and not getting,
all I want and
never wanted,
mis-aligned gears.
I am stuck.
Trying to wait it out,
wade through it,
step over,
walk around it.
Hoping it has
shifted by the end
of Hooper.
