TO SAY THAT YOU'VE BEEN THERE
(8/10/14)


I stand quietly
upon
this corner
in Tulsa

a corner
that many
long time residents
probably
do not know
even exists

I see things
here
that they'll
never see

that they'll
never imagine

even though
they are only
a few miles
away

maybe
they're too busy
dreaming
of faraway places

international
travel

exotic
lands

a crow
swoops low
over my shoulder
from behind
gliding up
to the top
of a high line
pole

cawing
it's presence
to all
who can hear

I watch
and listen
for a minute
then continue
my walk

I have been
somewhere
today
