Stirring : A Literary Collection

Wendy Videlock


You sent directions to your home.
They covered both sides of a page.
There were notes in the margins,
parenthetical sketches
of cross-legged buddhas
and juniper trees, warnings
of signs turned upside-down,
an ordered list
of the most meticulous rest stops

and half-way between two dusty towns
you crossed out the words, I need.

The loop of your L's and the sparkling moss
stopped me from responding,
if only to say,
You forgot; I want to be lost.
