NaPoWriMo Day 26

We Keep Starting Over
And no resolution ever comes
except the act of giving up
and creating another beginning

We have yet to make a choice
that leads us to stability
just another city,
another apartment, another job,
another set of strangers
who take their time
enfolding us in their history
until they are almost too late
until it is almost time for us
to quit and try our hands at
a different story.

Perhaps the error is in
assigning significance to
each changing, in expecting
new movements to create meaning.

Perhaps we should just be
content as urban nomads,
drifting, and let go of these
intentions, the seeds we
keep expecting to take root.
