Walk on, walk by, hurry to work or to play.
to coffee or to the doctor.
Quick, quick in fear or joy, into the fray.
Hurry past what is still, stock-still, stone-still
Carved, crafted, set apart.
A door, a post, a fence or bus stop,
A winged ox, a monkey on a horse.
Does it matter? Go by all the long day
on a bus, a bike, in a car or truck.
Drive by, hurry, hurry, walk by, go by.
And let the winged ox look down on you.
