Unfulfilled Desires

Unfulfilled Desires - Kelsey Wilder poetry
Jaded as I scootch around
under San Francisco
waiting for a train to come
underneath I’m glum

Noticing the dim and dumb
wannabes from office towers
rap tap tapping phones
workers tracked by satellites

Everywhere distractions
feeling discomboobulated
clamoring for something better
gazing at my shoe

In me gobs of ire flailing
flummoxed by a million billion
unfulfilled desires
cranky demons cackling

I am not sure why
a little wobbled mild mannered joe
falling prey to corporate metal
teeth that don’t let go
