23 August: A Destination

by Jan Toorup 1858, The Vagabonds. People in a graveyard.

A Destination

Some days this town made him feel
small. As if he’d lost himself.

Other times, he felt both dead and alive.
So he boarded a bus for anywhere else.

And with each departure,
he swore it would be his last.

  2. There are no destinations; only new departure points, eh?

    1. There is but one destination, and I’m nowhere near ready to plant my clogs yet.
