The Grind

stopped in the parking lot dragging sore feet

heavy foot falls clapping against creased

crevassed asphalt

ankle clicking in time

sharp and brittle treble

cadence piercing the bass of

blocky rubber soles

hope that isn’t too serious

they don’t provide

I currently reside in Indiana where I am taking classes through Penn State University to complete my Bachelors in Finance and work for a non-profit clinic. I was always passionate about reading and writing and I intend to use this blog to hone my craft and to entertain others. Please feel free to reach out and provide feedback or to discuss my work.
