Road

“Life is more than concepts.”
    ~ Thich Nhat Hanh, Zen Keys (2005)

I walk down the mountain
With poems in my pack
And the silence of the night
It’s certainly broken
There’d be a fix
Of some sort or other on our minds
Had you come along
Instead I skirt around the sheer drop
Where the missing part was
Thinking how much
Better off are the mountain
The night and I now
No one drives
