~ markers ~
Where are the markers we start from, in relation to the roads that we cross? Permanence can give way to cart some of the break evens off as a loss. Part smart and part dumb is the notion that we are each our own boss. BART comes in with brand new, and drops them off with no gloss.
We wish to bury our roots, so that we can be unmoved when we wish. Then we curse immobility wanting a taste of a different dish. We cannot have it both ways, though crossing signs let us know of an alternate way. Whether one always moves or always stays, our markers live to fight another day.
