daily poem / poetry blog

on being an artist

she said –
imagine the world rides
the subway but you
have to walk
(no map/hat/
snacks/cab fare)

i said yes
take me there drop me
off i’ll start walking

why?
because trains can’t go
to the amazing places
some of the best things
happen
off-grid

to those who have never been:
you won’t get directions, you’ll
get hell hungry, feel lost (sunburn’s
a real thing) but if you make
it all the way the view will
leave you breathless.
