"But first, baby, as you climb and count the stairs (and they total the same), did you, sometime or somewhere, have a different idea?
Is this, baby, what you were born to feel, and do, and be?"

Two Stories


There's a story

of a dark road where a man got lost

so badly he forgot where he was going.

There's another of a bright road

where a woman, also lost

took the wrong directions out.

These are the stories that raised me,

both the same story,

and my best explanation for urgency.

You have your own. I know you do.

But listen; there are only two stories,

Look out your window.

Tell me what they are.
