True North

(Advice for the Directionally Challenged)



When all other maps shred
and the tread on your
borrowed shoes has grown
thin, spin
the globe sideways.

The beat of your own
heart is best, the rhythm
of your own caged chest
should guide you home.



Prompted by Poetic Asides.

  1. Philosophically this is great advice. But when you’re really and truly lost (and directionally challenged) – if it were me I should probably follow the opposite of my instincts. I wish I had a good gps in my head!

    “thin, spin” … Ah, this is about going to spin class. 😉
