There’s a crossroad

junction in west Texas

a place far away

from most of what we know

a place with partially

paved country roads

stretching true to

the compass

and a few wild flowers

growing like crooked fingers

at the base of four

stop signs


every direction has a

city at its end

with lights and noise

unlike this here

intersection of roads
