Upset Parrot by Maurice Schulman

Poetry


Paused Before Vastness, Daunted

Genevieve Fitzgerald

Seeing my hesitation he says,
Go to the end of the line and get off
Wander away
At first do it local
Pelham Bay or Far Rockaway
With the distance just physical
Vincennes to Maillot
But with practice, stray further
Until time dissolves into timeless
And destination turns metaphor
Journey to dark at the edges of light
No luggage is suitable
No map can be accurate
Beyond the end of the line

Beautiful. Perfect for today, 1/1 when the year ahead that should seem so hopeful seems vast and dark and scary.
