Walking 2



I am walking in the direction
I chose to walk in
though it leads me further
and further from joy.
It happens that there is a sunset,
though it is not the sunset
toward which I point.
How did love get behind me
when I set out, I thought,
headed straight for it?
And everything that made me smile?
I am walking because there is only
walking and not walking.  Am I lost,
or was there only ever one destination?
