Magpie Tales 185: Remember and Remember

paths incarnate: 

abundance describes us perfectly - 
opportunity too. convenience 

is a lighted path - toss the maps 
in a bin;  no shortage of owner's manuals 
to predetermined clarity. 

try beating an intellectual path then do it.
(if you can see that well at night)

think neon:  a visual allergy making 
you blink, rather than think. 

a pitch black forest at the end of your steps
is dark - is 

either life abbreviated or extended 
                    for one or the other.
