The Obscene Gesture of A Milestone

by on August 24, 2023 :: 0 comments

Although the lines these lanes draw
meet at eternity
We do not see that while parallel-driving.

Then, our ignorance holds more truths
than some knowledge and a theory.
We pass a few grazing cows, drills,
a mill without a single operating hand
and some trees withered and waiting.

As we drive the first rain hits
our car roofs as if
clouds have borne
the long-term wait’s weight until
We drive past a certain milestone.

Shouldn’t it state the distance to eternity?
Instead, one digit almost erased
expresses an obscenity.
