Scale it Down a Bit

My head will stay down with the other ostriches ,out of eye shot out of my mind
blacktop concreted view will keep me invisible til i feel i should be seen or not
better off without sparkling conscience heavy weighted stares
stay off the clocked radar
keeping off the grass
letting the good dogs have their day without this bastard mutt
we all just might be better off
i wrote an essay as a child of what i wanted to be when
i grew up if i decided to grow up
200 words of how i wanted to be invisible
the teacher could not grade it for the lack of punctuation or career she said
it was still more realistic than the boy who sat next to me who was going to be an astronaut
