un/favoured

when you're the least
liked by no fault
of your own --
you'd think it would
popeye chews 
sour you completely
over the prospect
of friendship

it really doesn't
-- simply forces
you to realise
depth of specialized
focus 

not everyone
is established
to walk a path
ravaged not only
with thistles
but mirth

some brick
roads are just
that brick

-- others are lined
with carefully
laid popeye chews
solidified 
with warm
molasses
grout
