a road with no name

if you haven’t learned by doing
if you haven’t burned by touching

by the giving
and the forgiving,

negating
the very means
of your existence,

holding on to that aching piece of flesh
on the left side of your breast
afraid to lose,

you have gone nowhere
nowhere that i know,

irrespective of the distance
traversed by your dusty shoes.
