same species

where you going?

they asked wanting destination

names to hang ideas on

I dunno I say back

out of this road onto the next

heading west & south

see what happens

on the run

& I hear the fear

feel the bristle of hair standing

but but but

no plans?

oh I got maps see where I am

find interesting places close

but y’know it’s the adventure

not the destination

& they’re looking at me

as I’m looking at them

one of us thinks

we are not

the same species
