Standing at the Crossroads


you and I
standing at the crossroads
looking beyond.

walking beneath the azure sky
lost in submission
out in the woods.

deep in the vagrant waters
where we gaze upon
we find each other
like shimmering little stars

constantly changing our
reflections and emotions
like ripples themselves.

we live in each other’s
unabashedly alone
in this unaltered
& unalterable world,

strolling haggard on the roads
carefree us two vagabonds
drifting, floating, unsettling
but —

like an eyelid’s
soundless blink
some nocturnal blackness
moth-eaten and warm
from the starless heavens above

like a quiet throng of vulture voyeurs
the woods watch us
& a crossing breeze cuts a pause
all we hear is —
the bell of silence
upon the air of gloom
ding dong!
