I found myself walking on an empty road
with endless dusty plains stretched out
before me, as I turned round and round.
I could see over there, an intersection
and a sign, yellow, diamond, the marking
unknown. I, so clearly a stranger
in a marked but baffling world.
The two roads surely crossed, and yet
standing in the center of the ‘t’,
all of the directness of each way
all paths became one.
I mean this literally.
The roads up and moved right on top
of each other. And now they were headed
I saw the sign from here –
and from this everywhere
it was clear.
But if I spoke of it from here, with you
over there, you wouldn’t understand.
So get lost on a road,
and come find me.
