blind direction

turn left, turn right,
go straight, u-turn,
take this right!
No, take this left!

and you wonder why I write,
because you’re worse than
a fucking broke ass GPS;
recalculating; recalculating.

it would be best if you just
admitted that the direction
you really want to go is
straight into the ditch
where we’ll all drown
and be swept away

instead, the course you’re
charting might as well
been drawn up by a
Helen Keller cartographer.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
