Middle of Nowhere

Standing at the side

of the road not knowing

whether to turn left or right.

No matter which I choose

I’m not going to make

it home before night.

Nothing looks familiar and

I don’t know how I got here.

No money or phone it’s like

I’m a lost tourist or sightseer.

I look to the sun to try

and figure out the time, 

like they did in movies I had seen,

but I haven’t a clue

what I’m doing and end up

whispering something obscene.

No traffic is travelling this road

so I can’t thumb a lift,

it’s as if I’ve been put

out to sea and then set adrift.

A house in the distance

seems my only chance

but with my luck it’s a mirage

and will disappear once I advance.

I thought there was no such place

as the middle of nowhere

until I woke up there

in the middle of this nightmare.
