Oahu, HI

In line we jostle
in green-eyed hustle,
striving for the next rung –
a discontented crowd
with feelings stored in a cloud.

Is this life?
This constant strife?
No!
Let’s step down
onto solid ground.

And sit awhile,
resetting the dial
to another space –
a peaceful penury
all the richer if you’re with me.

Inspired by the Daily Prompt: Keeping up with the Jones’
