ROAD WORK AHEAD
(8/22/13)


my route
is planned

my day
is planned

my life
is planned

then
first thing
out of the box
I hit an ugly
orange and black
ultimatum
telling me
that I had better
rethink
my itinerary

my schedule

my timing

forgot about
God
laughing
at my plans

this is Society
trying to
kill me
one little
diversion
at a time

I detour
into a darkened
neighborhood
in order to avoid
the construction

see a light
on
at one house

wonder
what it would
be like
to sit down
at their kitchen
table

drink
a cup
of coffee

visit
for awhile

forget
all of this
shit

stay
until they
find me

take me
away

make
decisions
for me

drive me
around
those barricades
of their
making
