very narrow
are these passages
we walk

like alleyways
in the first cities

paved with the
stones of your days

each one along
the way
appearing just before
a foot comes down
there is always wonder,
whether there will be

another to support
the weight
of both you and
the pack you carry
a pack
empty at the start,
growing ever heavier

as you head toward
the place where you
can finally release it from
your shoulders
and wade again
in the ocean
of eternity
