i had to wander off
this road map says that’s what he does
i had to move away just to feel i was choosing

up there like a man upon a mission
confident that everyone would see
careful to avoid the small derisions and setbacks
and hold out for victory

and aspiration came like blossom surrounding a drain
such certain fairytales that nobody asked for

i retreated in the intermission
confident that nobody would see
i got home and watched the television
a box set, a lifetime, a family tree

so what would life have been if i had stayed there?
weekday words not such a mystery
there for your quotidian decisions
a lifespan, a flight path, a way to be

i found a way to be
