Keep Going

Keep going
Turn the radio off

Keep going.

Past the signs that say FOOD
Say LODGING
Say GAS
Keep it in fifth
until it all passes away
to
sky
and
grass.

Stop when you hear silence
and realize the silence
is a rushing.

Keep going.

Go into the space
you were afraid
to tell yourself about.

Keep going.

Read the language of
striation
fossil
and sand dune.

Feel the sun slide down past you
to the other side
of the earth

See the moon rising with you
as you raise your left hand.

Pitch a tent
in the darkness
and walk away blind.

Still going.

– Cooyright Kay Winter
