A singular pursuit
He kicks glass off the platform
Soft volleys offer small protection
Eagle-eyes search for all the specks
Joined in obsessive practice
His long time friend, half-hearted
Cut short by the ever-searching quest
A practice of responsibility
A foible and a folly; quixotic
He shrugs off his ill-fitting jacket
Reveals a nonchalant dress
Thumbing it to the corporate world
Kick, kick, kick.
