Crossroads

Crossroads

I am always at a crossroads
detours in the corner of my eye
paths I could have
would have
should have walked
if I could just read the map
they tattooed on my arm.
I am at a crossroads today
whether I like it or not
exit ramp on the left
a hazardous cut across
six lanes of traffic
I can weave and dodge
I can make it
I know I can
I hope I can
Or I can keep driving straight
and pray for a rest stop
before my wheels give out beneath me.
