Afterthought 227—One Eighty

Pull over.  Here.  We need to turn around
before we've gone too far beyond that end
of what we'd recognize as homeward bound.
Pull over here.  We need to.  Turn around.
Go back to where we lost the way we found,
that way that led us to ourselves. Friend,
pull over here.  We need to turn around
before we've gone too far.  Beyond that end,
what keeps us going when we have no chance?
Pull. Over. Here. We. Need. To. Turn. Around.
Were this not how we taught ourselves to dance,
what keeps us going?  When we have no chance
together, this road's lost all its romance.
We'll vanish down it, not a sight nor sound.
What keeps us going when we have no chance?
Pull over here.  We need to turn around.
