Crossroads


 (Rene Magritte, La Reconaisance Infinie)


Crossroads

You thrust your easily drawn conclusion
And you cast it upon me
Fresh and hot
It's easy for it to strike me
And I won't move out of its way
It will get me
but I won't let it cover me
I'll take it
I'll fold it
I'll lay it aside
And I'll call you 
to stand right here where I'm standing
You choose and come
You choose and go
The profit of your choice will be evaluated*
either instantly or at the next crossroads
even though you won't have realised it,
my sibling.


Z.K. 

        
*real profit is warmth in a heart, a wholehearted smile, the support of a friend, things with a value much greater than money.
