streets under my feet – 
until I in my body and the world in its
skin of earth were blended into a single act of knowing.

Perhaps it is everywhere – on water and land.

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.

And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say”
