Complex Directions

Written for:  Poetic Asides #429 – Write a direction poem.
“For today’s prompt, write a direction poem. Of course, there’s north, east, west, south; backward and forward; up and down. But direction could also equate to stage directions, parental directions, and any number of other interpretations. Let’s all take a poetic direction with this prompt.”

People say, he is to the right of right.
If he keeps going, he may end up left.

You can right a wrong,
but you cannot wrong a right.

Did you ever go up the down staircase
or down the up staircase
on an escalator?

If a product comes with directions
of more than A and B, I am not interested.

Cupid aims his arrow
at the heart.

I started writing at the top
of this page; I have now come
to the bottom.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
