why i walk

i walk because
when i sit my thoughts go nowhere
they circle around and around
like flies to a carcass
questions flitting from one answer to the next
never landing on anything
never reaching a conclusion

when i walk they move with me
they reach somewhere
get settled

settled,
they leave me
my mind clears once again
the incessant barking to figure it out
questions that never leave
they stop
