I stand before a horseshoe canyon,
and it feels like the world
has folded back upon itself.
And I sort of like that idea.
There's too much emphasis on progress,
so maybe we need pockets of regress.
Not a full fusion blast of regression.
No one's calling for being battered back
to the stone age.
Maybe, it'd just be nice to escape
the clarity of the watercourse way.
To be in the kind of place
where one has to drop a leaf
to know which way the waters flow.
