I hadn’t the foggiest notion
Where to go,
Just sat there in the car
Aimlessly staring up at the stars
Navigationally ignorant
Of the North.
Turned the key;
Headlights against the dusk,
Then drove away,
Swinging right
The first small ‘step’ direction
From the house.
I remember thinking,
How easy it is
For to take the courage,
From this storm
To change one’s life.
And move in one direction
On my own.
