my foot brushes against the hot sand

my foot brushes against hot sand

the road at my feet is bare

what bits of gravel left kicked to the sides

ruts continuing around the bend

the road is well traveled

safe

comfortable

as it winds through the country

small white farmhouses

mingling with rolling wheat fields

 

the scalding asphalt

sits in the middle of a jungle

forging a path through sky scrapers

shabby brick apartment buildings

revving engines and honking horns

new

dangerous

numerous crossroads shoot out in all directions

I can take whichever one I want

and see something new on each street

 

two vastly different terrains lay ahead

waiting patiently for first steps
