I Am The Fork In The Road


If people crammed chest to back
Two thousand people to the kilometre
I am half a million people from town

Totally alone in the startling silence
Too far for anyone to hear my cooee
Small in horizon spanning immensity

Yet here there is only one road
I can go forward or I can go back
Or I can stay here and find myself

Written in 2009.

I’m still looking.

  1. Your poetry has always been worth reading. Why aren’t you still writing?
