When It’s a Question of Direction

you know
to go one way
is to move in reverse

to turn
another will
shuffle you sideways

a third
way, of course,
could push you forward

but in
life there’s no
not-moving, like it or not.

so you
know which
direction you need to turn, but

it scares
you because
moving forward always

leaves something behind.
