How To Sulk on Summer Walks

On bright
summer days
if I stop
and listen
to the wind,

or kids
playing tag,

or notice
the clouds
resting above
green mountains—

I sigh,
my fears quiet
and my worries
don’t seem
quite so large.

These days
when I go for walks
I make sure I keep
my headphones in
my eyes down
the volume up
the sad-bastard-music on
and all the peaceful sights and sounds out.
