this way out



I want to be lost,

adrift in the silence of om,

floundering in peril,

forgetting past blunders,

breaking old patterns,

mystified by the beauty of the puzzle.

I want to love the bewildered,

study their aimless truth,

follow their disoriented paths,

hold tight their hands as we

leap into the baffling rift,

between now and forever.

I want to travel in confusion,

go astray into dark rooms,

where others fear to enter,

to find the secrets of the forlorn,

in the haven of the perplexed.

And there I will find rest.

OK. Your poem is about getting lost, but it is the photo that disorients me. I know it is not a blend. What am I looking at (excuse me, at what am I looking)?

It is a puddle and an arrow in a drive-thru line. The reflection is of the building, upside down, of course!
