Oh The Places You Won’t Go

Twisted road signs

after a tornado

say the exact opposite way of what they’re supposed to say

so when you think you’re pointed north bound

you’re bumping into penguins now

and you’re not even in Pittsburgh

sometimes gravity goes sideways

while whirlwinds wind their winds around

your town

and suddenly everything is upside down

until you walk away

and see

that where you wanted to go

wasn’t where you were supposed to go

so you got there

      Sure, even deadend signs are new beginnings when you hop the sign.
      I thought so much of this reply that I tweeted it. Thank you for inspiring me to greater heights.
