A Pigeon Strutting

A Pigeon Strutting

It cannot be anything about pride.
The forward thrust with every step.
More about balance. I do it, too.
But it's not seen in my stride. Mind
over matter
, as they say. But I walk.

Through this world I put best foot
forward.  And I'll shake your hand -
Ever mindful of falling off a ledge.
Often I will put clothes on, prior to
differing from the pigeon only in the

pecking at the pavement below us.
