Compound Locomotion by Bob Atkinson

Compound Locomotion

(c)2012 Bob Atkinson

compound locomotion
begins movement at the start
pulsing in its inclination
to push all those wicked hearts

stretching close bonds between
remaining still or moving backwards
hard pulses of independence
rattle status quos as it shatters

by breaking all those directed paths
of minds who would conform
to that which nature has produced
in her effort to move us onward

many, many ways become
expansions of the soul
with compound locomotion
driving us to our homes

the alternative moves within
the group's directional norm
and gives up all advancement
in exchange for social comfort

comfort becomes the ease
with which we give up the ghost
and die without knowing
did we accomplish all we hoped
