In retrospect (15 August)

Because it’s easier
To offer the right path,
When we took the other
And questioned our way.

Because our shrouded view
Will not be cleared by time,
Instead doubts and details will be
Replaced by all-concealing story.

Because setting out we have
Yet to choose, yet to see
What these green tracks
Hold beyond the curving way.

So we feign knowing and instead
Lend drafted maps to blank spaces
Uncharted territories awaiting
The first brushstrokes.
