sneakers on a telephone wire

before it was rome

carriage drawn by hand

or ass, depending on the means

at the time

cheering loudly

arena filled

it’s the same in this century as was before

this repeating of history

all roads returning

dead ends &

sharp corners

no more are there bound definitions

each flexible iteration

unfolded maps

with no meaning

hardly better than carbon copies

having followed all the directions

as if the plan could truly meet the

restrictions of reality

barrels forward

weight of the world in-tow

shrugging off the atlas

& redrawing the road ahead
