Why

I keep my head down when I walk.
I don’t know if it’s to avoid people’s eyes, fearing confrontation.
I don’t know if it’s because I want to watch where I place my booted feet in case I step on something unpleasant.
I don’t know if it’s because I’m in a sombre mood and I comically want to act like it.
I don’t know if it’s because there is something I look for in the ground instead of gazing whimsically at the sky.
I keep my head down when I walk.
One thing’s for sure- my steps are numbered.
