 once upon a time

Stickless 
I feel like a stick again. I listen to others talking
and their conversation is beyond my understanding 
It's as if i don't occupy the same shape nor space
they do, but I know, at least I think I know I'm the 
same as them. But i must be a stick again because,
it's as if I never worked with and heard their conversation.
All my working life heard the same old tales about football.
 
Never did understand the passion on display, but then again 
if one can't understand, its better being a stick, 
least way, one doesn't have to pretend you're interested in 
the drivel dribbling from their twisted smiles or perhaps sneering lips.
Today the the lips were moving on about pigeons 
okay i know they're a bird and that they, at least some of
them are homing pigeons, never felt at home anywhere.
 
maybe that's why I always feel like a stick, I get thrown 
Around and where i end, i settle, until I'm picked up by
a soft soughing though and find myself traveling on
carried by the wind in the guise of a plane. Unlike the
the homing pigeons where i end up is never home, just
a place upon the ground that welcomes stick men such as me.
