King Of Nowhere

WorkersComp

Distributing participation medals
Is a protest
Against
Capitalism. Evaluating participation
Via price
Creates value
Through the scheme of competition.

Bubbles wading through water
Complicate this notion-

Pockets of air
Gliding across the water
Like Jesus tip toeing across the Dead Sea

Motions the progress of momentary
Awe-

As bubbles spurt
Initiating spontaneous death
It’s reasonable to consider
Their value
As
Both immense and minuscule.

A moment of awe duplicated enmasse
Special in its seconds long inhale and burst
But common
As the ripples
That guide its essence
To the shoreline.

What distinguishes the middle ground
From its direction based kinfolk
Is the sustainability
Of having nowhere to go
And the ability to claim
Of having been there before.
