The Wanderer

from Wanderers, page 1
Petaluma, 1999

 

The psychology of wandering
A compulsion to get away
bound with optimism
Not from being dysfunctional
at home but inquisitiveness.

The existential romanticism of wandering
Feeding off exasperation and rancor
To become rootless, free
A prepubescent proving of masculinity
Beyond the proverbial bend.

A curiosity, a joy, a belief
that heaven is on earth
The origin of existence is
movement. The earth revolves
within a galaxy that wanders.
