6/30/16 Dream-wake

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
came together,

all paths became one.

I mean this literally.
The roads up and moved right on top
of each other. And now they were headed

everywhere.

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.
