STREET CORNER
(10/12/18)

I'm standing
here

doing
nothing

quite
alone

I can't
think
of anywhere
else
where I'd rather
be

people
walking by

or no
people

cars
driving by

or no
cars

sun

no sun

this is
perfect

at the
crossroads
of a small
town

perpendicular
highways

stretching
depending
upon direction

to the mountains

to the
oceans

or simply
farther
into these
flat plains

down
through the
pavement
to the center
of the Earth

up
through the
sky to

well

infinity

I could
stand here
forever

in the
middle
of nowhere

in the
middle
of everything

a statue
of understanding

stone
smile
upon my
face
