Double Stasis

Seats are the more dangerous of the two
And the first is the seat on which you're
Standing pat, unable to move, barely 
On top of the world you thought you knew
Gaia from space or a whale song at dawn
Beauty's a race to the caffeine struck from home
Cleverness! See that possibility: ever a mess
And there are assumptions at play
If you had one, take another
And consider yourself unlucky
Because your future is here
In front of you
Under your ass
Guided by everything you didn't 
Say you knew
And graded harshly
Undone by the walk 
Across places you haven't moved
