circular square town

Poem #57 from Small Town Kid (final)

Back to Small Town Kid – Introduction


I’m watching a circle form

from the start
at the point where I had to leave

within the arc
that constantly drew me to return
never once letting go

to the place where I stood
away out
on the perimeter
of being an independent man

how many radial steps
did it take
to pace from youth
into middle years

to this moment
a return to the beginning

the old town is different now
so am I
but the circle
is set to be squared
at last
