Directing traffic

Sometimes when I’m not sure
I either go with the toss of a coin
or take another detour,

detours are the things
the things in which to find
the things you seldom see,
but never mind.

I watch clocks
it’s a hobby of mine
hands turning slowly
across the long face
of time.

and coins,
what about coins?
I flip
pick tails
it always comes down

(you makes your beds and
lay on them)

dead ends make the
best friends, but the
best friends are not
always to be found
in the dead ends.

a roundabout way
of saying
I get on with each day,
but only
when I’m not sure.
