I walk 
Foot after foot 
But something isn’t right. 

I walk 
But not on the earth. 

I walk 
Each step on top of sock 
Each sock inside of shoe 
A shoe that steps on concrete 
The earth is hidden away below. 

I walk 
But my feet do not meet the ground 
Instead I float above it 

I walk 
Yet where I walk the earth does not reach me 

I walk 
I walk in cotton clouds.
