I Was Going Someplace

By Annmarie Lockhart

Inspiration Piece

.

tracking, like the railroad,

like the line of sight,

like the course

of action

.

expected and predictable

.

the only surprises

being the flat affect

of no twists and turns and

the sting of inflammatory

boredom that begs for the

salve of a change of direction

.

then, the appearance

of the sign, the sun,

the word, the right angle

to the parallel planes

pointing in a new direction,

a turnaround toward

tomorrow and the horizon

skewed by southern sunlight

.

    There’s a parallel linearity to both pieces that works brilliantly, and that pop of yellow that catches the eye of both viewer and reader.

    The photo is amazing. The poem is brilliant. It has a staccato feel to it, very like sporadic NYC traffic.
