Life Guidance

(the prompt for the evening was ʻButterflyʼ by Robert Graves)

How DID you get from there to here?
By guess, yes, by guess is best.

By should you could
By right you might

There is no map
Itʼs not a snap

A sharp turn may burn
As I could only slowly learn

Flying crooked covers ground
By good fortune, earth is round

Every story is unique
Read aloud, but do not peek

Chapter chapter, line by line
flying straight, flying blind

How DO you get from here to there?

By guess, YES, by guess is best.

—Bill Metz
