every road offers

every road offers
an opportunity to
wander – there are no

promises or incentives
beyond the invitation

every so often, wander

every so often, wander
to a place that resonates

on a scale of walking

on a scale of walking

in your voice,
taking me back
to the days when
i’d arrive at my
childhood home
and not ring you up.
i was found out,
i leaned the
heaviness against you
so that i could
find a new
balance, and you
shifted so that you
could accommodate
the weight. i
wandered alongside,
instead of into,
though the sound of
the waves will always
compete with your voice


there is no controlling when

there is no controlling when
your mind will
wander, lift up
a corner of this
